The church itself is pretty, but doesn't stand out from the others. The one thing you should absolutely do is go to the small anteroom in the front, stand in the center of the concentric circles on the floor and look up. You'll get a fantastic view up the tower.

Even though I am not religious I often find such beauty in churches and cathedrals. This one is no exception. In fact, it is one of the most breathtaking cathedrals I have seen. The stained glass windows are so elaborate you could stare at them alone for hours upon hours. The carvings and paintings adorning the walls are plentiful and just as stunning. This was easily one of the best hours we spent in Bruges and, as a small plus, it was free. Definitely visit this cathedral if you can!

A beautiful church with some fantastic art work. A lovely place to have a seat and reflect. It is definitely worth a look if you are in Bruges.

Lots of great religious art, but the nicest thing was the simply painted masonry - it really gives one a sense of how things used to be.

This is a big building that seemed to lack something. Perhaps it was because we had seen the treasures elsewhere and there are none of such quality here. Some fine baroque black and white marble and odd traces of something older but overall the exterior is a good deal more interesting than the interior.
