Something to admire and photograph

Sint-Baafsplein Square has something to admire and photograph from every angle (something normal in Ghent). There are St. Bavo Cathedral, the Town Clock, in NTGent, and, in the centre, a large bell that calls the attention of all onlookers, the Klokke Roeland. This bell was recast in 1660, after Charles the 5th ordered the destruction of the previous on in 1324. The people of Ghent even have a song dedicated to this great bell! In this beautiful place, there are also other embellished monuments, as you can see in the photos.
