Posted January 31st, 2014 by Tony. Comments Off on Bruges: A Fantastic Stay.

Bruges. No, not what it seems, this town has a charm that enchants but not with these arts and that the name comes from the Spanish “original noun that means bridges, so we know that Bruges has more construction to go over water with magicians and witches, but the magic does not lack. This city, of the most beautiful of the Flemish part of Belgium, has a lot of pleasures and facilities for tourists. Their language is Dutch but its inhabitants have a stunning facility with languages so we will not have trouble communicating in English or other languages (French, German …). In addition, the transport communication is also very good, although most of the most interesting are so despreocupense pedestrian transportation and walking. Even we could not spend the night in Bruges as trains to nearby towns are continuous but for those who have fallen in love with this place and also want to enjoy your evening, here are some: the Downtown B & B Calis, the romantic Andre’s Bed & Breakfast, or the backpacker Snuffel Backpacker Hostel. Narrow streets, cobbled and winding, colorful houses, canals, medieval smell … are some of the reasons that have made the historic World Heritage Site.

Rebuilt and restored surprisingly dominant style, the Gothic, and its continuous monuments. The main square houses the bell tower over 80 meters, and Hallen, a market that originally sold strictly wool and cloth. The Watchtower is the symbol of the city, formerly watched from there the fire and possible riots, now used to see one of the best views, although both difficult step is worth it. Provincial Palace nineteenth century Flemish houses XVI and XVII are found around and in Bruges is that the eyes do not lie ever, wherever you look you will find an item to admire. Burg Square, near the previous Breidelstraat Street, home to historical buildings like the Palace of Justice, City Council and the Probostia.

Then there is the Basilica of Holy Blood, which is stored according to tradition, the blood of Christ that brought a count of Flanders, in one of his trips to the Holy Land, one of the most visited buildings. The Cathedral of San Salvador or Church of Our Lady are other religious monuments to see a larger artistic beauty, the first being the oldest parish in the city and the second for having a brick tower of great length. In addition to architecture culture continues with a busy schedule that has the city. Like the Archaeological Museum, the Arents House Groeninge or are worth visiting, regularly updated exhibitions, live music posted on the door of bars and cafes and events in cultural centers, auctioned the visit. But above all, give rides aimlessly, hiding the charms over every stone of its streets.
