Construction of the St. Michael's church in Ghent started in 1440. The original plan was to build a 134 high steeple for this church. Because of financial problems only a 24 metres high tower remained. Inside the church you can see numerous painting by famous masters, including "Christ on the Cross" by Anthony Van Dyck. The St. Michael's Church is situated next to the St. Michael's Bridge in the historical center of Ghent.
