Fodor's Review

St. Nicholas's Church was built in the 11th century in Romanesque style, but was destroyed a century later after two disastrous fires; it was later rebuilt by prosperous merchants. The tower, one of the many soaring landmarks of this city's famed skyline, dates from about 1300 and was the first belfry in Gent. During the French Revolution the church was used as a stable, and its treasures were ransacked. The most recent restorations were completed in 2000, renewing Belgian's

best example of Scheldt-Gothic once again.
