The Basilica of the Holy Blood is located right next to the City Hall in the Burg Square of Bruges. It is a prominent two-storeyed chapel that holds a lot of significance for Christians all around the world as it is a house to the relic from the time of Christ's crucifixion. The cylindrical vial is believed to hold a piece of cloth from Jesus Christ's last apparel. The piece of fabric is famously known as soaked with the blood of Christ. The basilica itself was built in the 1150s by Thierry of Alsace, Count of Flanders.
The church is also a prominent monument because of its architectural prowess and historical significance. The basilica has been continuously renovated since its establishment. It now consists of two floors - a mixture of Romanesque and Gothic fashion with a Renaissance staircase. The church attracts a lot of travellers - religious and not, because of its cultural, architectural and historical value to the experience of the city of Bruges. The vial, extremely protected inside the basilica, is allowed outside its walls only on the Ascension Day when the basilica holds a Procession of the Holy Blood. One can expect to be in awe of the age-old sculptures, murals, statues, artworks and paintings exhibited around the basilica and in the Museum.
