Belfry and Cloth Hall of Ghent

Highly recommended
The massive outline of the 91m-high belfry, topped by a dragon, symbolises the power of Ghent's medieval guilds. Inside, the chamber was the seat of the town's privileges and liberties The upper platform offers a fine view of the city. Built in the 13C and 14C, then frequently altered and restored, the belfry adjoins the 15CCloth Hall . Walk round the belfry to see theformer prison gate (1741), adorned with the BaroqueMammelokker "Suckling Man" bas-relief.
