the Meat HouseThe Meat House in Ghent served as a market where sales were centralised in order to check the meat's freshness and quality. It was build in the 15th century with a beautiful vaulted ceiling. The small white house against the Meat House is called " 't Galgenhuisje ". It was used to sell the entrails of the animals to the poor people, now it' s used as a bar. From 2000 the Meat House is used to promote regional products like ham, beer and chocolate.
