Really beautiful and interesting place to see, and right in the main market square. Great stained glass and wall paintings - and it's free too. Worth the extra 2 euros to visit the museum.

As may be expected, the place is very quiet, beautifully kempt and impressive by design. Once inside you will find its spirituality almost tangible, even if you do not see anyone else around. Do not forget to pay a visit!

We were there in April and the whole place was awash with daffodils. It is a very spiritual place without feeling religious. A great place for contemplation. Unfortunately there was nowhere to sit and be at peace.

this is one of my favourite part of Bruges,. Of course there can be many tourists there but essentially it is a very peaceful solemn place. In the little church we heard the sisters saying their prayers in unison and I found this very moving.

It is a quiet enclave (except for the hordes of travelers who disturb the setting at times) that is simple in appearance but makes a profound impact as it takes you back in time. The surrounding canals and waterfront homes are lovely.

A lovely walk around this historic sight. Read about it before you go - it is a wonderful story. It is away from the hustle and bustle of the centre of town near the very pretty Minnewater.

A delightful settlement with a feeling of peace as soon as you enter the gates. The church is simple with some beautiful stained glass windows and an area set aside for private prayer. Sadly, my experience was marred by an inconsiderate tour guide who came...More
