What travelers say:

Transportation: The Basilica of the Holy Blood is located in the market square of Bruges. After visiting the market square, you can walk to the city hall. There are buses 2, 14, and 90 until you get off at the Brugge Markt station. The scenic spots are also concentrated, which is very convenient. Tickets: The Basilica of the Holy Blood is free to visit, no tickets are required~ Recommended reason: The Basilica of the Holy Blood is a very famous church in Bruges. Legend has it that during the Second Crusade, the Holy Blood of Jesus was brought back from Jerusalem and stored in this church in Bruges. Therefore, this church is called the Church of the Holy Blood. The city of Bruges has also become prosperous because of the Church of the Holy Blood. The Church of the Holy Blood is on the market square. The finely carved church facade is particularly conspicuous, and there are many golden icons on the outside of the church. From the appearance of the church, this church is worth visiting carefully. After entering the second floor of the church through the stairs, you can see the Gothic chapel and church museum rebuilt in the 19th century. The church museum is charged separately. There is no charge for the chapel. Part of it was under maintenance when I went there, and I couldn't appreciate it up close, but the stained glass windows unique to the Gothic style were particularly beautiful. Sunlight shines into the church from the stained glass, enriching the beauty of the church's form. It is said that every year on the day of the ascension of Jesus, the priest will place the holy blood on the holy blood shelf and walk through the streets of Bruges.
