This church was not built to become the cathedral of the city. It rose to this status only in the 19th century. At the beginning St. Salvator's was only a parish church. The main religious building in the city was the St. Donatius church which was situated right in the heart of Brugge, opposite the town hall. At the end of the 18th century French occupants of Brugge chased away the bishop of the city and demolished the St. Donatius church, seat of the bishop.
