Bruges - The Basilica of the Holy Blood (Heilig Bloed Basiliek) is actually a double church. A Romanesque building was incorporated into a later Gothic church, and the whole structure was connected with a beautiful exterior Renaissance stairway. On a Rococo altar you can see a precious relic (a little bottle) containing the holy blood of Jesus brought by Thierry d'Alsace during the 12th century, probably during the looting of Constantinople in 1204 (according to the legend he received a few drops of Jesus' blood from the Patriarch of Jerusalem during a crusade).
