The medieval towns of Bruges and Ghent are next on our Belgium Tours.
Bruges, the ‘Venice of the North,’ is renowned for its canals, cobbled streets and medieval buildings. Its architectural styles include Gothic, Renaissance, Gothic Revival, and Neo-classical. How about a 366-step climb to the top of a 3rd century belfry? We’ll also throw in a boat cruise along the city’s famous canals.
Ghent is another perfectly preserved medieval city. We’ll admire the 1432 altarpiece by the Van Eyck brothers titled ‘The adoration of the Mystic Lamb.’ A walk through the charming Patershol district will bring us to the recently restored Friary of Calced Carmelites.
