Belfry of Bruges

It is a medieval bell tower in the historical centre of Bruges, Belgium.

The belfry was added to the market square around 1240, when Bruges was prospering as an important centre of the Flemish cloth industry. After a devastating fire in 1280, the tower was largely rebuilt. The city archives, however, were forever lost to the flames.
