Beautiful church and see worth a visit. The outside is stunning with the gilt highlights and the inside is dark and peaceful with wonderful statues.

I went there because of the reference to it in In Bruges and I definitely did not regret it. I did not pay the €2.50 for the museum part but if i was in Bruges again I'd pop in quickly

This is a beautiful church with ornate stained glass. We didn't go inside but took plenty of pictures of the outside. I wish we would've had time​ to take a tour.

Beautiful basilica with wonderful museum pieces of great age and beauty. Peaceful inside. You do not need to be religious to be moved by the basilica and its contents. Somewhere to think, reflect and escape the city hustle and reflect on one mans suffering long ago.
