  • After visiting the beautiful castle Gravensteen, frankly speaking, Girard's Castle of the devil was not impressed. If not this contrast comparison, I might and would score higher. But Gothic Geeraard de Duivelsteen looks more simply, there is no order of greatness and magnitude as in the Gravensteen. A small dissonance cause a couple of more modern buildings around, though in a couple of minutes walk the beautiful Cathedral of Saint Bavo and other Gothic and Flemish architecture in all its splendor. However, the reset Feature the Devil's Castle is not worth it, in the first place is an architectural monument of the 13th century and the oldest stone building in Ghent. In doing so, it should be noted that the building was reconstructed over the centuries, modernized, making lost its true appearance of erection of the 13th century. On a bleak view of the Castle doesn't look monumental, but nearly smooth, as if polished by time gives the impression of masonry and more or less spectacularly castle looks by Reep channel, or rather pieces of channel, which on both sides of the Castle, as if zakatan under the city and comes out again a little further. At present the castle is gorarhiv, and that this structure is in for me remains a mystery.
