Neighbourhood

The vibrant, traffic-free neighbourhood of St Jacobs takes its name from the Gothic 12th-century church of the same name where the area’s cluster of winding streets converge. The main Vrijdagmarkt square was the political heart of Ghent during the Middle Ages and is now home to the city’s biggest flea market. Across the narrow Leie river, on the edge of the St Jacobs neighbourhood, is Oudburg, a street with a Turkish community and a hub for the creative new establishments that have opened here in the past five to 10 years.
