Bruges - Brugge, Belgium - Holy Blood Procession

ABOVE: Holy Blood Procession in May (see link below).


Bruges is well-supplied with tourist shops for every taste, including many chocolate shops. There's no need to list them here; the town is compact enough that you'll find plenty of shopping opportunities on your own. However, we will mention one business that's unique and deserves a plug:

If you're an archbishop in the market for new vestments or a clergyman in search of a chalice, this is the place to come. Visitors with a taste for ecclesiastical needlework are also welcome at the atelier, whose clients have included Pope John Paul II


Procession of the Holy Blood
Every May, some 1,500 Bruges citizens (many in medieval costume) take part in this mile-long religious procession that dates back to the year 1150.
