Behind the simple Façade of this church hides a beautiful baroque style architecture. The white colour of the wall and the black-white colour of the floor makes the interior more attractieve to see.

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.
