Went in for a quiet prayer. Truly a place of reverence and peace. The clergy were respectful and very welcoming. Don't know if it's the blood of Christ -- doesn't matter!!

This is one to definitely include in your visit. Very spiritual place and amazing architecture. You do not have to be religious to appreciate all the interior.

A beautiful old church and this is the location of the cloth with the blood of Jesus. You can only see the cloth during certain hours (2 pm-4 Pm when we went) so make sure you plan accordingly if you want to see it.

My partner and I visited on a recent trip to Bruges. Beautiful church and we were given the opportunity to view the vial whilst receiving a blessing from the priest.

The staff do a great job in keeping the tourists in check (volume control & limiting the places photographs can be taken) ensuring a pleasant experience.

We went to Bruges on a day trip from Brussels. What a charming, beautiful city. Stumbling on this magnificent church was an amazing spiritual experience. We spent about an hour admiring the architecture and sitting in silence in the presence of the Holy Blood of Jesus. A must!
