Just breath taking. We spent almost an hour in the basilica and upstairs museum, so quiet and peaceful
Really beautiful inside, the walls are painted in rich colours and the stained glass is lovely. Well worth climbing the several flights of stairs to see it.
The Basilica of the Holy Blood is the place where the blood of Christ resides in a crystal vial brought back from the crusades by the Duke of Burgoyne in the middle ages. In May on Ascension day there is a great parade and celebration and it is worth traveling to see it.
Very interesting building in 2 parts with a medieval fairly plain part on the lower level and more ornamental newer part upstairs. Well worth a visit
You can go in this church and set for a long time taking in everything there is so much to look at. It was interesting to see someone try to take in his dog but fortunately was not able to.
A beautiful little gem every inch of this lovely place is decorated. There is also a small room containing information and historical artefacts
I love old churches and this beautiful gothic example built around the Holy Blood relic brought back from a crusade to the Holy Land is beautiful. My first visit on a Sunday evening was just externally as I had just arrived in Bruges. I planned to go back the following day but be warned - this Basilica is closed (... More
The basilica is beautiful inside, of that there is no doubt. The pulpit alone is mighty impressive. However, what spoils this attraction is the long queues to look at the holy blood vessel. We didnt bother, but the building itself is still worth a look.
Stopped by while in Bruges. Incredible history. Beautiful chapel. And the relic. What else can I say. A must see while in Bruges. Go early in the morning when nobody is there 2 euro donation to look at the relic up close
