This is part of the interior of St. Jacobs church.
The second picture is a police that tourists pointing the right way.

St. Jacobs is a church that showcases a rich history
St. Jacobs was popularly called "Saint-Jacques-of-the-chen more" named after the swampy area where the first parish was founded in 1093. Perhaps the choice of St. Jacob was prompted by a growing interest in pilgrimages to Santiago de Compostela. As well as the patron saint of shipping, St. Jacob expresses possible the needs of a city population under the influence of the nearby port experienced an increasing growth. dating the oldest material traces of the building from the 12th century. A remarkable variety of components testifies to the various changes that have since undergone the church. The interior is characterized by great diversity. This heterogeneity enters the St. Jacobs forward as a unique witness to nearly 900 years of Church architecture in Ghent. In addition to paintings by Jan Boeckhorst and Michiel Coxie, St. Jacobs also houses a special sacrament tower and two monuments honouring Palfijn.
