Bruges is a fabulous place to visit with countless interesting buildings, museums and church's. But don't miss this one - it is very very interesting.

12th century Roman catholic church, worth seeing - on the side of a lovely square, wonderful outside and superb 13th century architecture

Well worth a visit. The shrine is to the blood of Christ, it was brought back to Brugge by a knight in the crusades.

It has been mentioned in another review, and even though I am not a religious person, I found this church was very atmospheric.

This Church is exquisite, we missed the ceremony of the Holy Blood, but the visit was still worthwhile for the beauty of the Church, and the splendour of the tabernacle. Worth a visit.
