Our Lady In Bruges Is Both Big And Beautiful…

Another page from my travel journal of last summer as Family Kiwidutch visit Bruges Belgium.

I’m taking my Singaporean friend  “Velveteen” to visit a very special place to see a very special sight.

The place is the Church of Our Lady (Dutch: Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk)  that dates mainly from the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries.

The Church tower, at 122.3 meters in height, remains the tallest structure in the city and the second tallest brick-work tower in the world (the tallest being the St. Martin’s Church in Landshut, Germany).

That probably is one of the reasons  we had a huge problem to photograph all of the tower in one photo…

Because we were in Bruges  for several days we managed to take photos from all sorts of angles, in all sorts of weathers, so  even if we didn’t  get it all in one hit, we at least managed to snap lots of bite sized pieces of this beautiful building.   In the end it has become rather a long photographic post, but there were so many angles and details to choose from… Let’s take a look…    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_Our_Lady,_Bruges
