Market Square as night falls, (left) statue of Jan Breydel and Pieter de Coninck, (right) Provincial Court in front and the house of the Governor of the Province of West-Flanders (middle - dark grey).


Provincial Court building was built by the architect Louis Delacenserie. The construction of the Provincial Court started in 1887, but it was only in 1921 that the three left bay-spans were ready. The white stone facade of the Provincial Court is assymetric: the left wing has three spans, the middle has alson three spans, but the right wing has four spans with a paasage. The middle part has a floor more and is accentuated as much as the corners with guerite towers. A stone spire with crockets is crowned with finials and the windows are decorated with tracery.
