Church of Our Lady#6 in Best Things To Do in Bruges
- 0.0Food Scene
Making up one of the key structures of the Bruges skyline, the Church of Our Lady boasts the second highest brick tower in the world (standing at nearly 400 feet tall) and is home to Michelangelo's Madonna and Child sculpture, among other artworks. The Gothic structure also houses several tombs and 13th-century sepulchres.
Past visitors to the church said they were impressed by the artwork and architecture, though they warned there may be some scaffolding, as the church is undergoing renovations.
The church itself is free to visit, but you'll have to pay 6 euros (just more than $6) if you want to view the artworks. You'll find the church in the historic city center less than half of a mile south of the Markt. Monday through Saturday, the church is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Sunday, it's open from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit the Musea Brugge website.
