Brugge Things to Do: 9 reviews and 9 photos
The oldest written source of the hospital of St. Hohn dates back to 1811. It concerns the rules and regualtions which had to be obeyed by the religious inmates. As well as brothers of St. john, ther were Augustine nuns, who tended the sick and who sheltered poor travllers. I tis interestin gtoi visit the old pharmacy,a nd one should be sure to visit the Memling museum in the old hospital-ward. Hans Memling, of German origin, ended up in Brugges, wher he dominated the scene for more than 30 years.
