  • He monastery Augustinian of Sint-Stefanus was founded in 1296, when the Bishop of Tournai granted its permission ecclesiastical to the order to found a convent and monastery in lands of the family Borluut, low the advocation of San Esteban. In 1582, during the Spanish occupation, the Church and the monastery were almost razed: for a full century (between 1621 and 1720) was rebuilt with funds from the family Borluut building and erected a major library that is still in good condition and can be visited. In 2001 he started another restoration of the monastery that is bringing back its former beauty. The Church of the monastery of Sint-Stefanus attracts many believers who do not belong to his parish. The constant growth of devotion to Santa Rita, an Augustinian santa, has made of Sint-Stefanus a popular pilgrimage church, particularly on 22 may, feast of the Holy. Usual hours are between 0700 and 1145 hours in the morning and the afternoon hours 14.00 to 17.45, with free admission. It is worth knowing this historic building, its quiet inner courtyard and internal dependencies, especially the Chapel and library. An interesting attraction in Ghent.
