The oldest parts of the St. Jacobs church in Ghent date back to the 12th century. Later the church was converted and made bigger in Gothic style. You can see the difference between the 2 styles in the towers. The east tower was built in the 15 century in Gothic style with hooks on the roof, the west tower is a remainder from the Romanesque style. The St. Jacobs church is located in the Lange Nieuwstraat, close to the Vrijdagmarkt(Friday Market).
