Torre Belfry

From Brugge 2010


The belfry of Bruges, or Belfort, is a medieval bell tower in the historical center of Bruges, Belgium. One of the city's most prominent symbols,[1] the belfry formerly housed a treasury and the municipal archives, and served as an observation post for spotting fires and other danger. A narrow, steep staircase of 366 steps, accessible by the public for an entry fee, leads to the top of the 83-meter-high building, which leans about a meter to the east.

A Igreja do Sagrado Sangue, cuja visita aconselho vivamente :)

From Brugge 2010


The Basilica of the Holy Blood (Dutch: Heilig-Bloedbasiliek, French: Basilique du Saint-Sang) is a Roman Catholic minor basilica in Bruges, Belgium. Originally built in the 12th century as the chapel of the residence of the Count of Flanders, the church houses a venerated relic of the Holy Blood allegedly collected by Joseph of Arimathea and brought from the Holy Land by Thierry of Alsace, Count of Flanders. Built between 1134 and 1157, it was promoted to minor basilica in 1923.

Really beautiful photos! The Basilica of the Holy Blood is stunning inside! I attended Mass there and the relic was exhibited so I got to see it too.
I love the lights decorating the façades of the houses on the Markt!
Thanks for sharing these lovely pictures!

Provavelmente este vai ser o meu próximo passeio... já tinha ouvido falar muito de Brugges, inclusivamente já vi um filme realizado lá e fiquei deslumbrada! Não chamam Brugges tambem a Veneza da Belgica ou algo do genero?
