St Michael's Bridge, Ghent

These include the Old Fish Market, Castle of the Counts, and "Three Tower Row," all of which you can see in a panoramic cityscape. The pedestrian bridge is named for the church that resides on one end, recognizable for its large Gothic windows. A winged St. Michael watches over the pathway from the top of a lamppost.
