St Salvator's Cathedral, Bruges
(3.8/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
View artwork from different periods of Belgium's history at St Salvator's Cathedral, 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 St Salvator's Cathedral and all Bruges has to offer by arranging your trip with our Bruges vacation trip planner.
