  • 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.

  • This monastery is located to the North of the castle of the counts of Flanders and is built around a large cloister. Severe forms of his Church, a large Gothic window only diluted over the entrance and a cupola over the CEPA sredokrestiem.

  • The Augustinian monastery with its Sint-Stefanuskerk is located not far from Gravensteen Castle. The monastery was founded in 1296, and the Augustinian monks could the first 250 years of living more or less peacefully until ikonoklasmen in 1566, when the monastery was stormed and destroyed. Also during the French revolution it went wrong. But every time they managed for the monks to come back and get their monastery rebuilt. The monks here, but still a part of the monastery building is used as a college and some rooms are rented out for conferences and meetings. As a tourist you can not visit the monastery but the Church. The current church was consecrated in 1841 and its Tower was completed in 1849. Remarkable is the beautiful pulpit in carved oak and Gaspar de Crayer of images.
