Ghent a walk through the city with camera in hand.

The “Vrijdagmarkt” Friday market in the Belgian city of Ghent is one of the oldest squares in the city. The square played a major role in the history of the city.
The Vrijdagmarkt is about one hectare in size. In the center of the square is a statue of Jacob van Artevelde who proclaimed King Edward III of England king of France on the square on January 26, 1340, and thereby defied the authority of the Count of Flanders and his liege lord. Five years later, weavers and fullers assassinated each other on this square as a prelude to the murder of James van Artevelde, the wise man of Ghent.
The Gentenaars organized the joyful income of the counts of Flanders; it was their forum and they played jousting here. The market was also the scene of executions and settlements. Van Butzel, who was convicted of father-murder, was the last to be beheaded by the guillotine in 1822
