"Towerless but houses Van Dyck's "Christ dying on the cross"."

Despite its rather humble exterior St. Michael’s Church in Ghent is an example of Neo-Gothic interior. Most importantly, it houses Rococo and neoclassic statues as well as 18th century and Baroque paintings, including "Christ dying on the cross" by Anthony Van Dyck. St. Michael’s Church is devoted to Archangel Michael, as you can tell by its name, and it took years to be completed as interference such as destructive fires and religious conflicts changed the original plans. That's why now this church looks incomplete with its tower-less appearance.
