Owner description: The 115 metres high brick tower of the Church of Our Lady is a perfect illustration of the craftsmanship of Bruges' artisans. The church displays a valuable art collection: Michelangelo's world-famous Madonna and Child, countless paintings, 13th-century painted sepulchres and the tombs of Mary of Burgundy and Charles the Bold.
Useful Information: Wheelchair access

The 122 meter high spire dominates the Bruges skyline, and is reputed to be one of the highest brick buildings in Europe. Nice architecture inside, the highlight is Michelangelo's world famous Madonna with Child sculpture which is reputed to be the only sculpture by Michelangelo that is outside Italy.

This place is stunning but the alter and beyond are undergoing a lot of restoration at the moment so there is a lot of sheeting up and you can't see as much as you might like.

This is a lovely church and even lovelier is the Michelangelo sculpture in the church. It is a must see.

I know it's a church like any other, but it has a very beautiful architecture, and, it houses the Michelangelo sculpture Madonna and Child. I was really happy to have seen the sculpture. It's worth going there just to see the sculpture, given it's one of the most well known sculptures.

The church is currently undergoing restoration work and there was a lot of scaffolding about but it was still great to see the Madonna. It's 2 euros to get in to the section with Michaelangelo's statue but there are other bits and pieces to see too. Well worth popping in.
