Away from the tourist hotspot

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

I got married in this church which is for me of course the nicest in Bruges town! To visit also in the late evening in winter with all the candles.... And beautiful music !

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.

Well worth a short walk away from the centre of the city to discover this wonderful gem. Kept in beautiful order and a real piece of architecture.

This is a fascinating building. Very ornate but in need of attention. We visited it twice, once for our Friday evening rehearsal and the again on Saturday for our concert. Full of tourists who were very appreciative of our singing. Good place to sing.

We visited this church on the Thursday afternoon; this was the first timewe saw it was open. As it is off the main square a bit, it was not full of tourist so was peaceful and powerful. Entry by donation. Gorgeous pulpit, nice art work, decorate communion rail, lots of silverware and a lovely altar piece by Suvee. Certainly worth... More
