  • Beautiful place pop into for a visit if in Brugge. The pulpit has to be seen to be believed and the vaulted ceiling is simply an amazing feat of engineering! Some beautiful religious iconography to view including a reliquary with some of the arm bone of St. Anthony The Abbot (in pics). There is another area with more art but this is a paid area and we didn't visit this time.
  • Beautiful interior. The fact that a Michelangelo statue is here makes this church a worthy place to stop at. You can feel the Flemish heritage here and the medieval vibes.
