Bruges has four preserved medieval city gates. The Ghent Gate is one of them. For strangers, it was an entrance to the city; for the people of Bruges, it was a border with the outside world.
The gate had to defend the city. At the same time, it also served as a passageway for goods that were imported or exported.
The statue that stands in the niche above the gate is St. Adriaan. He had to protect Bruges against the plague.
