2008 Archive Ghent “Donkersteeg”

You look between two large buildings on the narrow street "De Donkersteeg"
Narrowly curved street that opens onto the Koornmarkt where the medieval grain market took place. The old French name "rue du Paradis" would be borrowed from the inn "Het Hemelrijck" or Hotel du Paradis, the current number 2. Although this street contains mainly old cores, which would even rise to the 11th century, the current street scene determined by plastered and whitewashed gables from the first half of the 19th century with staggered cornices. Now a picturesque shopping street. The access to a dead-end alley with dilapidated houses and rear houses, called the Paradijszak, is formed by a very weathered gate of about 1500 (between number 22 and 24). Plastered brick construction with sandstone tudor arch on the side, completely weathered water table and probably also enriched with cartouche; right closed by means of donkey's back with leipers and brick.

I hope you enjoy
