“A church full of artistic treasures, with the ‘Madonna and Child’ of Michelangelo and the tombs of Charles the Bold and Mary of Burgundy.”
“This is a very cool, ancient church. It is free to enter the main church area, however, to see the “museum” part of the church, including the famous Madonna & Child, there is a small fee to pay.
“The fee is so worth it! They have many paintings, reliquaries, tombs and mosaics, but the Michelangelo Madonna & Child is worth the fee all by itself.”
“The spire of this church, together with the Belfort (Belfry and Carillon) and Sint-Salvatorskathedraal (St Saviour’s Cathedral), determines the ‘skyline’ of Bruges. With its 115.5 metres, it is the second highest brick tower in the world.”
