The 115 metres high brick tower of the Church of Our Lady is a perfect illustration of the craftsmanship of Bruges' artisans. The church displays a valuable art collection: Michelangelo's world-famous Madonna and Child, countless paintings, 13th-century painted sepulchres and the tombs of Mary of Burgundy and Charles the Bold.

This Michelangelo Madonna is a must see. But what a pity to see it in a such poor condition, not highlighted, exposed in a church under maintenance, you can't approach at less that 3 mt. And, of course, you have to pay a (small) fee ....

Must visit to see Michelangelo's Bruges Madonna. You have to buy a ticket to access that part of the church, but well worth the price.

My main motivation on going to Bruges was solemnly to see the Michelangelo's statue. Really impressive! The church is under restoration though.

This is a beautiful church whose tower, at 122.3 m., makes it the tallest structure in Bruges. At the time of our visit the church was undergoing renovations including an organ re-build, but we were able to achieve our primary goal, which was to see Michelangelo's white marble statue of the Madonna and Child. The sculpture is stunning in its... More

This is worth a visit despite the renovations being carried out in the building. There is a small entrance fee to see the famous work of art.

We went to this church to see Michelangelo’s Madonna and Child. Once you pay the entrance fee to see the statue and the inside of the church, you step in a side chapel, where they displayed the masterpiece. A definitive splendor not to be missed, and worth the fee. The church it’s in is also beautiful, albeit with some features... More
