Church of Our Lady Brugge Reviews
Definitely see Mar 14, 2010
A huge church in the town of Bruges, the Church of Our Lady is a nice place to see some wonderful church art.
The highlight in this place, is the Madonna and Child by Michelangelo, located in the chapel, which is the first thing seen when entering. It was the only work of his, that has left Italy during his lifetime. Completed in 1504, this was carved when he took a break from carving his most famous work, David.
There is more church art and tombs in the apse, but that is separate admission. Some of the tombs include that of Mary of Burgundy and other rulers of Bruges. There are other church art and an altarpiece on display as well. If you like seeing this type of art, then it may be worth the admission.
Visit to the main part of the church is free. But in winter, keep in mind that it is not heated at all.
