Saint-Salvator Cathedral, Bruges Overview

The Saint - Salvator’s Cathedral, the oldest parish church in Bruges since the 10th century, was raised to the cathedral of Bruges in 1834. It has been reconstructed multiple times to give it its modern look: tall towers and neo-Romanesque style. It is located at a little distance from all the central attractions at Bruges. It carries a lot of cultural, religious and historical significance in the city of Bruges. This church replaced the old cathedral: St. Donation’s Cathedral after it was destroyed during French Colonization.

Some of the significant collections kept in this church are Martyrdom of the Holy Hippolytus by Dieric Bouts, and Hugo van der Goes, Mother of Sorrows by Jan Van Eyck, Portrait of King Charles by Barend van Orley and various other paintings and artworks. Other artistic elements of the church include tapestries, murals, Gothic choir stalls, pulpit, rod loft with an organ, the chapel of Saint Jacob and so on.
