View from the Quay of the Rosary (De Rozenhoedkaai) looking across the Rosary dock towards the Belfry of Bruges (Belfort).

The Belfry of Bruges, or Belfort, is a medieval bell tower in the historic centre of Bruges. One of the city's most prominent symbols, the belfry formerly housed a treasury and the municipal archives, and served as a watchtower (inside of which were hung bells, each bell having a distinct sound and function (eg bells for danger, bells for important announcements, bells to indicate the time, etc.). A narrow, steep staircase of 366 steps, accessible by the public for an entry fee, leads to the top of the 83m high tower, which leans about a half a metre to the east.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Poortersloge'.

Best wishes,
Philip

I did too, but 30 years ago when I was young, fit and agile!
