Sint-Salvatorskathedraal, Bruges

4.1
View artwork from different periods of Belgium's history at Sint-Salvatorskathedraal, one of the city's most significant churches. While the first parish church was established here in the 10th century, the oldest remaining part of today's 19th-century Romanesque structure is the foundation of the tower, dating back to the 12th century. When you enter, look for the handwoven wall carpets from the 18th century; further inside, look for the 15th-century altarpieces and the 16th-century podium in the choir. Look up to see the arched buttresses and wood carving. This centrally located church is a good stop on any walking tour of the city.

  • From a distance is the Tower of this Cathedral to see already. At the beginning of a busy shopping street you will see many people sitting in front of this Cathedral. From outside it is already an impressive building. Indoors, there are beautiful works of art to see. We are not in the Treasury, but can definitely recommend here to go in if you are in Bruges are

  • A beautiful Cathedral in honour of our Lord with beautiful paintings, stained glass, images and altar. Unfortunately is in the works which prevents having a idea of beauty as a whole, but it's magnificent.
