This lovely country-side charmed us the most during our min-Europe tour. The Basilica is a must-see monument. Regal and well-preserved over the ages. Amen.

Of all the great sights in Bruges this isn't one I would visit again. It lacks character and the staff are pretty overbearing constantly telling visitors to be quiet. There are much more interesting sights to see and I would avoid this.

If you are in Bruge make time to see this church. Beautiful, peaceful, reverent. Mass was spoken in 4 languages. The chapel space below the Basilica offers a quiet space for reflection as well.

An inspiring place, more so for people with a faith. Inside the building is so ornate, colourful it offers a chance for some reflection...if a bit busy

The visit to view the blood soaked gauge moved me - besides the viewing we went and sat in the Church and it was very spiritual.

Something everyone needs to see. The history here is amazing. The inside of the basilica is truly breathe taking.

Definitely no flash allowed and as far as I could tell you would not be able to take any photos at all of the holy vial itself

There is no fee to get in the church, but a small fee for the museum. There was no queue when I went, afternoon on a Saturday...
