If you believe in Jesus Christ history, you must visit this Church. Beside the beauty, if you visit during the correct time of the day, you can venerate the relic of the Precious Blood.

You go inside, enter the Basilica, and make your way to the Holy Blood. Honestly, I got more ecstatic from looking at the Mona Lisa for 30 seconds before being choke holded by the security at the Louvre for looking too long. I mean, do it, I guess. Can anyone even prove it's the Great One's blood? Probably not. Bruge's... More

The church is beautiful and you can walk past one of the priests in a processional to view Christ's drop of blood if you like. Don't try taking photos as I was scolded by one of the priests. This was a first for me as I have visited many churches all over the world and was never told I couldn't... More

Looking at it, it is hard to imagine anyone would ever wish to move any of it.... More

worth visiting if just to see the phial containing the Holy Blood which is on display every Friday Morning and can be kissed as it is held in a priests hand. But one must climb up some stairs to reach the Chapel which contains the Phial of the Holy Blood
