Between the many magnificent historical buildings of picture perfect Bruges, the Church of Our Lady was one of my favourite landmarks.

Dating back from the 13th to 15th Centuries, its 122,3 meters height brick tower dominates the city. The superb gothic architecture of the Church of Our Lady interior hosts a number of wonderful works of art, starting from Michelangelo‘s sculpture of the Madonna and Child, in white Carrara marble. The choir is the resting place of Charles the Bold anther daughter Mary of Burgundy, whose tombs are masterpieces of late gothic style.

After the buzz in the main square, it was nice walking savouring the silence of the Church of Our Lady, admiring the stunning gothic architecture, slowly walking along the nave and enjoying the sense of peace.


Note: A big thank you goes to Visit Flanders and their kind invitation to discover a corner of Europe I hadn’t visited yet. Only my passion for art and architecture, though, drove me to the Church of Our Lady in Bruges

    I agree with Jeff, this is a great photo of a church interior, which honestly is not always easy to photograph. I loved Bruges and its historic sights, but I would love to explore the rest of Flanders one day.

      As an art lover, you would love Flanders, Jenna. Regarding the pictures of churches interiors, you’re right, it’s not easy and I still wonder how I could manage to take this shot, without even having a tripod with me. Looks like luck was with me that day!
