Bruges has most of its medieval architecture intact. The historic centre of Bruges has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000.

Many of its medieval buildings are notable, including the Church of Our Lady, whose brick spire reaches 122.3 m making it one of the world’s highest brick towers/buildings. The sculpture Madonna and Child is believed to be Michelangelo’s only sculpture to have left Italy within his lifetime.

Bruges also has a very fine collection of medieval and early modern art, including the world-famous collection of Flemish Primitives. Various masters, such as  Jan van Eyck, lived and worked in Bruges.
