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.

  • This church that was built in 1250 and was completed nearly a century later was the first Gothic brick church built in Belgium. It is something far from the old town, 10 minutes from Plaza Burg. The exterior is very austere, highlighting its Square Tower of 99 m in height. Unfortunately hardly we could peek inside because they were 17 pm. and they were already closing. We could only see that it was very sober and had 3 ships and side chapels.

  • In his very strict Gothic building with a well visible from afar, 80-metre tower houses many valuable, interesting works by Flemish masters. In this Council the Duke of Burgundy has created the last of the knightly orders. Order of the Golden Fleece. Knights of the order of the Golden Fleece collected exactly in this Cathedral.
