It was intriguing to find out that this still privately owned church was likely modelled on the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. This resulted from a visit to the latter by a family member.

The interior is exceptional. The brick walls form the backdrop to some lovely decorative stonework. Behind the altar is one such, with portrayal of sculls and religious symbols. Numerous works adorn the wall, such as paintings and emblem displays. In the centre of the nave is the tomb of a family notable and his wife.

A fine stairway leads to the upper choir. From here are grand views over the extent of the church and its many attractive features.

We found this on a really quiet walking tour that was in a brochure. It is a great building and its history (same family for over 500 years), following this family, gives you a great idea of the entire history of Brugge since the 15th century.

I wanted to see this church, as a scene of the film "In Bruges" with Colin Farrell and Ralph Fiennes is shot here.
It's a hidden gem, with a very comprehensive museum attached.
The whole composition of the building and the atmosphere of the church make it a surprising and worthful stop, slightly off the beaten track.

This really takes you back to the 15th century, no messing around in this building. The marble back piece of the altar is quite beautiful
and full of symbolism. This was built as a replica of the basilica in Jerusalem.. If you visit the Folk Museum it is only a short walk away and should not be missed.

I went out of my way to see this church, and it was well worth it. Next to the lace museum, very interesting visit.
