  • I visited the chocolate capital of the world, Bruges in Belgium with my wife and two friends a few months ago. Whilst we were in the city we took the opportunity to have a look around inside the church. It's not a large building by any means, but I would definitely say it's worth a visit if you're ever visiting Belgium.
  • Ok. Went to see Michelangelo's statue which was lovely. It definitely worths a visit and the entrance fee is just €4 but nothing very special overall. Typical Catholic Church
