Product Description:
Ghent's stunning architecture, artworks and religious buildings are treasures to behold - rich in splendid significance and beauty.

Tragically, many travel guides simply brush over these beautiful creations as mere check boxes to tick during sightseeing in one of Belgium's loveliest and most underrated towns.

By contrast, Ghent - A Travel Guide of Art and History is designed for tourists who want to achieve in-depth understanding during their perusals of the wondrous achievements in painting, sculpture and design advanced and hosted in Ghent. Rich yet accessible descriptions of the most important and profound works abound, as guidance through the hidden gems and old town districts spur the reader to a strong comprehension.

The book has been crafted as a companion to a more general city guide, to be read as you tour and take in the greatest structures and edifices which Ghent offers in quantity. The beautiful old town of the city centre, and the astounding ecclesiastical wonder of St. Bavo's Cathedral are both described in detail, with the stolid and ancient St. Michael's Bridge also featuring.

By reading this illustrated book composed by lecturer of art and heritage architecture Maxime Jensens, you will imbue your journey with enlightenment it may otherwise have lacked. Comprehension of the historical and architectural clout Ghent has in the context of Flemish culture will imbue your trip with significance.

In all, your traversal of Ghent will be graced not simply with the happy memories of having seen and enjoyed the Belgian culture, food and hospitality - but a meaningful and intense understanding of how significant and inseparable Ghent's art and architecture are from its identity and gravity in the modern day.
