Almost every week I am in Ghent for shopping of my wife, but also a stroll in the city with my camera in the hand.
I was long time not on these place I saw a nice renovated building of the Bishop of the Province of East Flanders Van Looy, with in background the tower of the St Baafs Cathedral.
A nice blue sky and pleasant colours
I've made this picture, I hope that you enjoy.

The Episcopal Palace of Ghent is the administrative seat of the diocese of Ghent and the residence of the bishop. It is located on the “Bisdomplein” in the capital of East Flanders Ghent.
The building is protected as a monument
In 1840 it was decided to build on the east side of the Saint Bavo Cathedral. A new palace The neo-Gothic plans were drawn by engineer Matthias Joseph Wolters and the building was inaugurated by the then Bishop Louis-Joseph Delebecque in 1845. The land was a wasteland after the end of 18th century the cemetery to the cathedral was cleared.
The palace is to date (2013) is still inhabited by the current Bishop Lucas Van Looy
