"The Basilica Chapel of the Holy Blood" Basilica of the Holy Blood Tip by andrewyong

Basilica of the Holy Blood, Brugge: 51 reviews and 89 photos

Found next (annexed) to the city hall if the (tiny) Basilica Chapel of the Holy Blood or Most Precious Blood, which holds regular veneration of the relic of the Precious Blood of Christ contained in a phiall, and kept in a side reliquary altar in the upper basilica.

This is a dual chamber basilica, with an smaller austere lower basilica where you will feel transported back centuries as the walls are just bricks and stones, lighted only in certain areas to accentuate a grotto-like ambience. It is peaceful as you can almost focus yourself entirely in prayer.

The upper basilica is more decorative with painted walls and wooden ceiling.
