The Burg is the second of Bruges’s vast piazzas, just steps away from the Markt. It parades a similar array of beautiful medieval buildings, which together add up to a time-traveler’s trip through the history of European architecture. On this site, Baldwin Iron Arm, Count of Flanders, built a fortified castle (or burg) in the late 9th century, around which a village developed into Bruges. The rest, as they say, is history.
