Basilica of the Holy Blood
This well-preserved Romanesque style chapel with its colourful stained glass windows is pretty from the outside, but it’s what is on the inside that attracts most visitors. Built in the 12th century, this building houses a phial allegedly containing a clothe with the blood of Jesus Christ on it. Brought back by the Count of Flanders in 1150 who was on a crusade in the Holy Lands, it has never been opened since its arrival in Belgium.
