St Bavo's Square is to Ghent what Trafalgar Square is to London: the heart of the city. It is here, on this island, near the confluence of the rivers Scheldt and Leie, that the city of Ghent was born. And its name actually derives from Ganda, the Celtic word for confluence.
Three powers are represented in this central square: the citizenry by its mighty Belfry, the intellect by the stately Civic Theatre and the church, by its impressive St Bavo's Cathedral.
