Gand, Sint-Michielsbrug ARCHIVE 2016

Spans the River Leie

Construction period 1905-1909

Architect (s) Louis Cloquet

Sint-Michielsbrug:

The Sint-Michielsbrug is a stone arch bridge in the center of the Belgian city of Ghent. The bridge is located over the Leie, on the south side of the Graslei and Korenlei. The current monumental bridge was built in the period 1905-1909, after the foundation of the postal building. Both the Sint-Michielsbrug and the Old Post Building are creations by architect Louis Cloquet.

Previously there was a flat swing bridge. The bridge is part of the Sint-Michielshelling street. From the bridge one has a view to the north of the Gras- and Korenlei, and in the distance the Gravensteen. To the east, the bridge offers a typical view of the three Ghent towers: the Sint-Niklaaskerk, the Belfry of Ghent and the Sint-Baafs Cathedral. On the southwest side is the Saint Michael's Church. The bridge was protected as a monument in 1983
