The only church where the barrack art will give a glance of hope.

Difficult to get information on the precise hours of opening. But if you're lucky, the doors is open. Don't pass by, it is on of the highlights of Bruges!

Another lovely church in Bruges I particularly liked the black and white marble flooring , its not far from the city centre so well worth a visit you will need a map to find this place.

Impressive for how huge and beautiful it is. Baroque in the style and not far from the city centre, it's one of the most interesting monuments of this amazing city.

This is a repository of vestments and implements that are 100's of years old and is in danger of being closed permanently. Stunning architectural detail including one of the largest organs in Bruges.

One of the nice churches of Brugge. Unfortunately it is not located right in the center and a lillte difficult to find. But it is worth a visit.

Not only because of the Michelangelos statue, but also because its impressive interior it is a must to visit in Bruges. even if you are just having a walk among the channels have a look inside.

AMAZING Church, this church was just breathtaking and I cannot believe that I had missed it over and over again. I've been to Bruges several times and each and every time I missed this church given its location is not the most straightforward one.

We found this church on one of our walks after dinner. It is only open to the public after 6pm to walk around. It is a beautiful example of European church architecture. If you can't find God in this beautiful church you aren't trying.

This church is relatively close to the city centre but might as well be miles away, it wasn't busy at all. A gigantic church with plenty to see and admire. Definitely a great place to chill for a while and contemplate the universe...
