Bruges: Historic Art and Architectural Wonders

Its museums are full of works of art that are due as much to the Flemish Primitives as to the great contemporary artists. The city center has monasteries and beautiful homes such as the perfectly preserved Hof Bladelin.

Bruges was a textile center in the 13th century and, today, the city is a major tourist destination, it still has, thanks to its plethora of canals and houses richly decorated, preserved all its medieval charm.

The historic district, which is accessible only on foot, is bristling with arrows and gothic flourishes.
The friendly inhabitants of the capital of West-Flanders have no trouble impressing the tourists as they are proud to exhibit what their city has most beautiful, such as the Groeninge Museum, the Church of Our Lady, the Belfry and Les Halles.
