St. Magdalene’s Church

The St. Magdalene’s Church, built in the mid-19th century, was one of the earliest neo-Gothic churches on the European mainland. This style of architecture, first made popular in England, was brought to Bruges by British immigrants. That is how the Neo-Gothic appeared in the streets of Bruges quite early. Inside the church you can make your acquaintance with YOT, an organisation that explores the meaning of the Christian tradition in modern society.
