(500+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Specialty Museum
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. See Sint-Salvatorskathedraal and all Bruges has to offer by arranging your trip with our Bruges vacation trip planner.
