Picture of garden of hospital

This hospital was very important for Bruges to 1970, than became a new hospital built at the exterior of Bruges.

This old hospital is now an exposition space.
Certainly a visit worthy.

South facade of the medieval St. John's Hospital .
The hospital was implanted on Mary Street , the former access road from Ghent and Kortrijk . Of the first original hall , only the foundations and some wall fragments remaining . To meet the increasing demand for care for sick pilgrims and travelers began early 13th century with the construction of three new wards . A phase that lasted until about 1310. Later entered the monastery ( 14th century ) and the convent ( 1544 ) .
From the disappearance of the fraternity at the end of the 16th century, the Augustinian sisters were alone in the management and health care . From the 20th century, this was done by ordinary citizens .
From 1796 the hospital came under the administration of Civil Hospices and in 1925 turned into 1977, that the Commission for Public Assistance ( COO ) , to the current PWC.
