The adoration of Ghent: art, history and flavours in Flanders

Medieval and magical, vibrant and edgy – the Belgian city is a sensory overloadPlundered, dismantled and stolen, it’s a miracle that the Ghent Altarpiece – also known as the Adoration of the Mystic Lamb – by brothers Hubert and Jan Van Eyck, has survived.
