A hidden gem in Bruges! It has been owned by the same family for generations, so is perfectly preserved. There is an admission fee, half price for under 26 year olds, there is also an interesting small museum. Worth a visit!

It was closed during Easter but the exterior is beautiful. This is the only copy of the Jerusalem church (which has been authorized to be built).The guide said you can go at the top of the church and have a great view of Bruges.

Lovely domain owned by the same family for 700 years! The Jerusalem Chapel is beautiful. The story is told very well by a film and then you are free to explore. Interesting history connecting Genoa, Jerusalem and Scotland with Bruges through religion, trade and politics.

This lovely gem from the 15th century is a small, private church with a small sanctuary and a tall tower that is completely open on the inside--so you can look all the way up to the roof structure. If you are into spectacular architecture or...More
