What RC churches should be like. I could have sat for ages in quiet contemplation. Worth finding. The surrounding area is also worth a wander.

A lovely church, as with all Bruges churches, lots of pictures to see. This is a place where you can find yourself totally alone.

Took a walk away from the main tourist route to see the windmills on the canals--very worthwhile. Enroute, stopped at the church which was beautiful and there was music playing which made it even better. A restful stop away from the bustle of Bruge

The church is beautiful in its simplicity, with a clean look. We got there during the mass, so we couldn't look around too much, but on the other hand we were amazed with the beautiful music of the mass.

It is spacious and filled with light church. Amazing architecture and for some reason it has pacifying effect on you. You can stay there for hours.
