Out of the way point of interest

This place was not easy to find and was out of the usual touristy places but well worth the walk to find it.

This place is incredible. One man's inspiration from Jerusalem in the centre of Bruges. Lovely architecture, museum and garden.

Wonderful chapel, lovely stained glass windows in the chapel and an excellent museum in converted almshouses, very interactive. Great place to have a coffee too, loved the leather couches.

A stunning chapel, which also houses a piece of the true cross. Worth the time to view such a beautiful place of worship. Don't miss it on your visit to Brugge.

I visited the church whilst on a wander through the north-eastern part of Brugge. I had a Citycard so it was free but I think I wouldn't have bothered otherwise ... and the lace museum isn't included any more. There is a video you can watch telling the history of the place and the Adornes family who have owned the... More

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
