This is really ancient and well kept and very well worth visiting while in Bruges. I'd definitely come back again.

Beautiful little Basilica tucked away in the corner, very atmospheric and well worth a visit, a nice quiet place to sit and take in all the beautiful decor

Visited on a busy Saturday. Very few queues. Beautiful 13th century church containing relic of the holy blood. Museum v small but interestinga nd at only 2 euros it is good value as well as helping with the upkeep. Be sure to visit both the upper and lower churches.
