Lovely stained glass windows

The windows would be the highlight of the church although the pulpit and organ are also impressive. Worth a visit if you near the center of town.

I think this is one of the most beautiful churches in Europe. The intricate wood and metal work, the multitude of stained glass windows make it a magical place.

This was definitely a highlight of Bruges. All of the churches in Bruges are awesome and this one was quite amazing. This is a must see site!

This cathedral is very beautiful, and typically European, once you step inside. The exterior is rather dark and was actually under renovations when we visited. It is definitely worth seeing, though.

This is not the Holy Savior Cathedral, but Our Lady Church. My rating is although 4. Why? Because in this church there is a large amount of digged sepuchres.

The Cathedral was easy to find on any map. The government has begun renovating it so the fee for entrance is one third. We never pay to go inside a house of worship but you could see some amazing art just in the entry.

Parts of this church/cathedral date back to the 12th century. The tower of this church is reported to be the oldest part of the church as the bulk of the church was constructed later in the expected neogothic style of a mediaeval city.
