Saint Salvator's Cathedral - Bruges

The oldest parts of Bruges’ Saint Salvador’s Cathedral date from the 12th century, but the church as you see it today was not completed before the end of the 15th century. Particularly interesting features include the structure of the cathedral’s roof, and its magnificent jube (or rood screen), an exceptional example of a particular style of church division that, in most cases, was done away with by the Council of Trent. There is further evidence of a style of decoration that has all but disappeared, including the rich tapestries of the 17th and 18th centuries that adorn the nave. A visit to Saint Salvador’s Cathedral is a must!
