“very different church experience - plus Lace museum?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Church is great - VERY different to the other churches in the town.
BUT it's attached to a Lace museum and there's an entry fee which covers both attractions - you can't just do one or the other. Cheap though, so not a big problem.

“Worth a little walk.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

This is a private church in the hands of a single family for generations. Unusual architecture worth a little walk (15 min from the Markt Square). The adjoining small lace center museum is great if you are into that craft. The gift shop is disappointing.

“Fascinating bit of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

This unusual small church is one of many anchors in historical Brugge. Well worth a visit for it's unusual architecture and the fascinating history. And just next door is the lace museum - also very highly recommended.

“Interesting, but only a short visit is needed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

I went on a rainy day and had the place to myself. The church is small but still has a solemnity to it. The lace making demonstration was fascinating and the primary reason for my visit.

“very unusual church, worth the visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

The design of this church, based on the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, is quite unusual. It is a little walk away from some of the other sites in Bruges, but worth the effort. 3 euro entrance also includes the center where volunteers demontrate making bobbin lace.
