5 forgotten churches worth a visit in Bruges

1) Jeruzalemkerk

This mysterious private church was built by the Adornes family in 1429. It lies in a quiet neighbourhood, away from the crowds, so you might be the only visitor. Modelled on the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, the interior is on two levels, with family relics, a strange Crucifixion and a replica of Christ’s tomb in a dark crypt you have to crawl inside.
