Brugge, Belgium

"The canal in Brugge, Belgium", © 2004 Elroy Christenson 

The canal of the Dijver in Brugge connects various areas of the town to one another with the Belfry or Halles Tower in the background. It was the Venice of the north. It also is one of few cities of the north which avoided devastation from the various wars that rained havoc down on most of the rest of Belgium. The city has many remarkable works from its Spanish and early powerful trading centered culture. A sculpture work by Michelangelo is in the Church of Our Lady and St. John's Hospital has works by Hans Memling. Religious and historical sites are in abundance.
