We really didn't visit the church, but we used it as an aim point to find the lace museum and demonstration which is right in back of the church

By chance we walked in here. Originally run by Sisters but now there are none left there. There is an audio visual presentation which shows the history of the founder of the church who is buried there with his wife. He had travelled to Jerusalem and was murdered there. His remains were brought back and buried in the Church. One... More

Interesting family church. There is a nice attached museum with video. Inside the church there is interesting art and relicts of the True Cross and Holy Sepulcher. Worth a visit!

Very high admission charges - so many more interesting places to see for less, particularly the nearby folk museum.

Beautiful church but was disappointed that lace museum wasn't included as originally thought. Had planned to spend longer in this area of Bruges but consequently didn't!

as we could see the chruch from our b&B, we visited the place. The little museum next to the church gives all you need to know to even more appreciate this very small church.

A small but well preserved church full of local history and fabulous architecture. This is the church features in 'In Bruges' and contains fragments of the crucifixion cross. Make time for the church museum - very small but highly informative. There is a good video which gives a lot of historical history of Bruges as well we the church and... More

It's not easy to find but when you do find it this church feels like a hidden gem! Very few visitors, a nice informative video in other parts of the building and a quite area of town set you up nicely for the church itself which has a stone carved tomb which reminds you of the frozen hans solo from...

This is Bruges' only privately owned church. The entrance fee includes a 10 minute film of the history which is fascinating. The church was built by the Adornes - a prominent local family involved in pilgrimages to Jerusalem back in the 15th century from where they brought back the design of the church.

It is definetly worth the detour, for the small church itself, but also for the small streets you'll have to pass by, outside of the main touristic flow.
