Medical & religious destination

Bruges is the ideal destination for medical or religious congresses.

Throughout Bruges’ history, religion and medical sciences were closely connected to the city, which still is very much tangible today:

  • the convention centre Oud Sint-Jan is an ancient hospital
  • the many historical witnesses in the municipal museums, but foremost the Hospitalmuseum
  • 22 churches with valuable art e.g. the ‘Madonna with Child’ by Michelangelo
  • the Basilica of the Holy Blood with the relic
  • the numerous references in the city’s architecture
  • today, the academical hospitals Sint-Jan and Sint-Lucas are renowned fixed values
