*<see name="Onze Lieve Vrouwkerk" alt="" address="Mariastraat" directions="" phone="" url="" hours="" price="Free" lat="" long="">A fascinating church with architecture from the Romanesque and Gothic periods. In the east end of the church are very fine tombs of Charles the Bold and his daughter Mary of Burgundy - in contrasting Gothic and Renaissance styles, despite their superficial similarity. The church also houses one of the few Michelangelo sculptures outside of Italy, the "Madonna with child".</see>
*<see name="Jerusalem church" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="" url="http://www.visit-bruges.com/cathedrals-churches/the-jerusalem-church.htm" hours="" price="" lat="" long="">In a quiet area of the city, a highly unusual church with octagonal tower built by the Adornes brothers, merchants of Italian extraction. It includes a fine black tournai marble tomb, late Gothic stained glass, and a tiny and rather spooky chapel containing an effiggy effigy of the dead Christ. The entrance fee also covers the Lace Museum in the former Adornes mansion, where you can see local women and girls learning this traditional craft.</see>
*<see name="The Begijnhof" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="" url="" hours="" price="" lat="" long="">Also known as the convent, between the centre of the station and the city, with white painted small houses and fine plane trees, is a quiet place to walk - groups are discouraged.</see>
Bruges is visited by a huge number of tourists and it sometimes becomes quite annoying, especially around the Markt and Burg squares. The important thing to remember, however, is that very few tourists venture far away from the main shopping area, so if you want some peace and quiet you should simply explore the many small cobbled streets away from the main squares.
