View of Ghent

Painting Description

Following a frightening ride in a four-person, glass-sided elevator up through the tower of the church, we emerged into an observation hallway with open balconies that encircled the spire. The views across Ghent allowed us to register our city centre location using the old fort as a reference point. This historic castle has been restored to some of its former glory after falling into disrepair during which time numerous buildings were erected against it. Now much has been reconstructed and further work continues. Viewing from the church tower brought an odd comparison as the old fort is dwarfed by huge apartment blocks. These new buildings win in the height category, but fall short in the character department.
