Holy Saviour Cathedral - Review

What started out as a common parish church transformed into the Holy Saviour Cathedral of Bruges in the 19th century. The architecture is mainly Gothic and has a belfry that stretches up to a 100 meters and wooden choir stalls, built in the 15th century. The cathedral is also home to a museum and a treasury. The churches stunning tapestries and serene vibe make it a lovely place to visit for everyone.

In the 10th century, another church was deemed the most important religious structure of the city but at the end of the 18th century, that structure was destroyed. In 1834, came a new bishop and this church was elevated to the stature of the cathedral. This led to numerous architectural enhancements such as a Romanesque tower extension. The outside of the cathedral seems to change colour, depending on the weather and is very photogenic. The Cathedral is lit up at night, lending it a fascinating ethereal glow.

Parts of this cathedral were constructed during the 1230’s, the nave, the tower, transepts and the choir. There are different styling’s used on the ceiling work. There are richly ornamented pillars and an ornate silver shrine that once belonged to St. Eligius. The walls are adorned with paintings by Flemish artists. Close to the main altar, are a number of tombs that belong to famous Flemings, such as the Lord of Inghen. Walking down the aisles of the cathedral will treat you to quaint carvings, a statue of Mary Magedalene and a statue of a forlorn Mary, holding her departing son.

Today, besides being a place of worship, the cathedral houses numerous artworks, artefacts and items of beauty. On entering the church, you can see wall-carpets made in 1731. This great, dramatic building is full of visual delights. The Cathedral Museum houses ‘The Martyrdom of St. Hippolytus’ and other such historical work. The treasury holds religious vessels created out of gold and silver and other vestments. Though currently many parts of the Cathedral have been cordoned off for restoration, there are still many things to see and this is a good place for those seeking a moment of peaceful contemplation in a busy city.

Holy Saviour Cathedral, Bruges Reviews

Google+
  • Great church. Definitely one of the charms of Bruges. Also has real zombie-skeleton in the cellar, but looking at those costs extra.

  • Inspiring and beautiful church. Amazing religious art drawing the visitor into the mystery of Christ's passion and the call to discipleship.

  • Beautiful, pictures do not do it any justice. The sound from the choir is a must. Plenty to see, definitely worth the visit. A must!

  • Breath taking architecture, ancient beauty and things to marvel and soak in.. for hours. Serene atmosphere to pray and feel Divine....

  • Great church, I do believe there is a piss stop nearby, great place to relieve, thumbs up. People here are friendly, however most are tourists and go to and fro from the train station.
