Bruges continued

Today, Friday 1st June, we wandered past the Sint-Janshospitaal and decided to go in. It was an amazing old building and now houses a wonderful collection of 15th century art like triptichs etc and a display of scary medical tools used long ago. It wouldn't have been good to be sick or having a difficult birth then!!!
The ticket included a visit to the apothecary. This was amazing too.

I then went to the Kantcentrum, which is the lace centre. Bruges is famous for its lace, particularly bobbin lace. I loved seeing all the old samples of lace.

On Saturday we wandered to the Koningen Astrid Park. We saw some of the Almshouses for the poor on the way. Ma and I shopped a bit for in the afternoon. It was nice to have a bit of a quieter day.
