Sacred Books | Secret Libraries

The religious residents of the English Convent and the Carmelite Convent invite you to explore their buildings and their traditional way of life. The English Convent is known for its unique domed church, whereas the Carmelite Convent has an impressive refectory. Together with a guide, you will embark on a serene and spiritual journey, with books as the silver thread. At the end of the morning tour, you get to meet one of the monks or nuns.

Do & See

Some places are so special, so breathtaking or so unique that you simply have to see them. Bruges is filled to the brim with wonderful witnesses of a prosperous past, whether they be peaceful and picturesque, spiritual or, on the contrary, extremely entertaining.
