St Peter’s Abbey

St Peter’s Abbey is one of Ghent’s foremost monuments. Concealed behind its imposing walls is a surprisingly large garden with a vineyard, herb garden, fruit trees and ruins. The buildings you see today date from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the impressive refectory from the Middle Ages. St Peter’s Abbey presents historio-cultural, literary and photographic exhibitions at national and international leve
