We visited on our walking tour. It is a beautiful church and worth to stop. My camera broke so no pictures.

Located north of the historic centre in Bruges is St. James's church, a fairly well presented church with a good interior. A little of the beaten track.

An amazing array of paintings and statues. Well worth a visit. So much to look at. The carved pulpit has incredible detail.
