Gentpoortstraat | 8000 Brugge
Google Maps (Street View)
The Gentpoort is one of Bruges’ four preserved medieval city gates. For outsiders, this gate was the way in to the life of the city, while for the inhabitants it was a gateway to the outside world. The city gates were also the channels through which goods were transported in and out of the city. Naturally, the Gentpoort also had a defensive role, as is clear from its robust architecture.
The installation of the Gentpoort was possible with the support of VZW Levend Steen, the Flemish Community, the King Baudouin Foundation and the INTERREG IV A 2 Sees Programme, 'Invest in your future', co-funded by the European Union (European Regional Development Fund).
