This church goes back over 600 years and has been maintained by the same family for the entire time. The chapel is small but unique. The backdrop of skulls behind an alter is something I've never seen before. The relic this church claims is a piece of the true cross.
Highly recommend a visit here, it has the blood of Christ on display. We enjoyed mass as well. Check the hours of opening and viewing the blood of Christ before you go.
I visited this chapel this week with colleagues, everybody liked it. Not many people and because we were with a group, entrance was only 5 Euro (otherwise 7 Euro). Also funny that at the back, there is a very tiny space,you need to bent to get in, where a Christ is buried. The remains are not there but the most... 更多
We went into the Jerusalem Church using the Bruges city card, so value for money wasn't really on the agenda. We first watched the film, which was genuinely interesting (in contrast to many of these sorts of things) and laid the groundwork for what we saw in the museum. The museum area was was informative and helped us to make... 更多
If this site were in any other city it would be a top three attraction. It dates back to the 15th century and still contains most of the original structures. The devout Italian merchant who built it went on a trip to the holy land and attempted to recreate the Holy Sepulrchre including the Jesus cave. It is crazy in... 更多
This is a small atraction with a €7 fee. There is a good video about the trade and family history. Then on to the chapel its self it is small but totally different from the other chapels anywhere that I have been. It was worth a visit and there is a small honesty cafe as well
Went specifically to see one of the tombs as my husband has a PhD in medieval history. Very disappointed to find out the tomb was actually empty (on very small writing to the side) and the bones had been lost. False advertising. It's only 4 euros to get in but save this and treat yourself to a waffle instead
It may be out of the way, but this church can show some of its bigger brethren the way to capture the interest of the visitor. From an introductory film about the family to an interactive museum, and a visit to a beautiful little church, our interest was held throughout. Even children would find the interactive dispkay fascinating , I... 更多
A wonderful experience from start to finish. A informative museum with a short film. The church itself and then a fantastic photograph exhibition. Finish all that off with a cup of coffee in the Scottish room. This was a highlight for me in Brugge. If your a believer a relic of the true cross to see.
Definitely worth the 1km walk from the Grote market to see this church. There is a museum next door with plenty of information and a 5 minute video on its history in English, French and Dutch and German. The church interior is stunning and includes a replica of the Sepulchre above Jesus' tomb in Jerusalem. It has been in the... 更多
