It’s not something you expect to find in Ghent, especially when the rest of the city is so traditional, there’s castles, cathedrals, churches and all the usual stuff in between. What’s certainly not usual is the alleyway linking Hoogpoort and Onderstraat also known as Werregarenstraat.
Although graffiti is supposedly banned in Ghent there seem to be a few places where the authorities turn a blind eye and this is obviously one of them. Despite it’s central location the graffiti has been allowed to stay, presumably because it’s proving to be such a popular attraction with tourists. We definitely enjoyed ourselves snapping away and seeing what hidden gems we could find.
Are you a fan of street-art? And if so where’s the best city in the world to find it?
