Many visits to Bruges, first time here but not the last. I had no idea what this corner of the Burg contained- there is a relatively simple (come on, this is BRUGES!) gloomy, solidly-built stone church at ground level with the most wonderful sense of peace (subtle signs plead for silence) Marvellous.
Outside, a winding stairway leads up to another church, highly decorated, flamboyantly colourful, which contains a Genuine Medieval Relic; a crystal phial containing Christ's blood. Whatever your belief, it is impressive to join the hundreds of year's old river of humanity to view this object, and make of it what you will.
