      • Church of our Lady: You will walk past this beautiful building as you meander through these amazing streets. Within it's walls is the only sculpture by Michelangelo to leave Italy during his lifetime: his Madonna and Child, also known as the Madonna of Bruges.
      • Belfort Tower: View the Belfry that stands in the center of town. One of the city's most prominent symbols, this belfry used to house a treasury and the municipal archives, and served as an observation post for spotting fires and other danger.
      • Chocolate Museum: In a city known for its chocolate, this is a chocoholic's paradise. A must-see, must-taste experience.

      Cobbled lanes leading to centuries-old cathedrals, picturesque canals lined by perfectly preserved manor homes, spacious town squares dominated by dramatic Gothic towers ... all are yours to discover in beautiful Bruges.

      The Basilica of the Holy Blood – the Heilig-Bloedbasiliek – is named for a vial said to contain a few drops of Christ's blood, brought by Crusaders in the 12th century. This relic is hidden behind the silver tabernacle inside the colorful chapel and brought out daily. Not far away, the Church of our Lady (Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk) is home to Michelangelo's Madonna and Child sculpture, and its tower is the tallest structure in Bruges.

      At the heart of Bruges is its historic Markt, a sprawling square edged by medieval buildings converted to shops and cafes. Towering more than 270 feet above it all is the Belfort. Climb the 366 steps of this 13th-century belfry, home to a 47-bell carillon, for incredible views of the spires, red-tiled rooftops, squares, and canals of Bruges.

      Dessert? How about some of the best chocolate in the world, right here in Bruges. The Chocolate Museum has everything you'd ever want to know about this most sublime of sweets, although nothing you won't know in one bite.

      A good bad boy

      Philip III was a French duke in the 15th century whose rule extended to parts of what is now Belgium. He had no fixed court, although he did favor his palace in Bruges. With three marriages that produced three sons, and 24 documented mistresses who bore at least 18 illegitimate children, perhaps there was a reason he kept his court on the move. And why he was also known as "Philip the Good."
