This is one of the most beautiful buildings in Brugge. The architecture is lovely both inside and out. The history of the church goes back many centuries but the beauty is still everpresent. Highly recommended.

This church is located in a central area so you will definitely come across it. It's massive and beautiful both in the interior and in the exterior.

Dating back to the 12th Century, this is Bruges' oldest parish church. It has beautiful art work on display and, unlike other churches, access to the treasury is free. One can see many religious artifacts, including ornamental garments worn by the priests.
