Thagaste is set in the unique location of a historic monastery where Augustinian monks still live and work. The Augustinian Monastery is situated in the historic heart of Ghent, less than 5 minutes’ walk from the Cathedral, the UNESCO-protected Graslei, or the Belfry. Although the monastery is an oasis of peace, you are only a few steps away from the lively centre of the old historic city.

Thagaste represents the modern function of the monastery: a place where people meet, where they exchange ideas, and where they can simply enjoy being together, all nestled in a historic setting.

Just in case…
