Dominating the Sablon Square in the center of Brussels, this church was transformed from a chapel into a major gothic church starting in 1436 through the beginning of the 16th century, and truly exemplifies the Brabantine gothic style of architecture.

Can but not must go for a visit

Compared to Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, of course this one is small but still a nice and beautiful architectural building. The square opposite or nearby this church is nice too.

Enjoy the views of this church from her hotel window across the street. It is quite lovely. We went inside and it was just OK. I've seen more stunning interiors.

Another beautiful church in Bruxelles. Bruxelles is a easy city to walk around and get to most things or use the tram and the busses.

Dates back to the 13th Century with a gothic style exterior. There are information leaflets in multiple languages available inside the church (for a donation) which explain the history.

Some lovely features and statues inside. Identifiable by the block steeple. Some lovely cafes outside too. All worth a visit.

What a fantastic church, this has to be on the list of things to see when in Brussels. It's an especially fantastic sight when walking up through the park and the church towers above the trees

A charming little church from the 15th century in a beautiful neighborhood. The edifice of the church is ornate and pristine clean. Whether seen from the Parc de Petite Sablon or the Grande Sablon, the exterior of the church is amazingly picturesque. Visiting is free. Check out the interesting statue of Our Lady in a boat inside and read the... More

No doubt Notre Dame du Sablon is one of the top best churches in Brussels. Walking the streets of the center arrived just in front of this beautiful religious building, the beauty of art and architecture of the Gothic style, it almost seems a little Notre Dame of Paris. However visit the church is free, no ticket fee applied! An... More

Judging by some other photos, I think the exterior of Notre Dame du Sablon might have been restored recently. The west front, in particular, is spectacular. We arrived in the late afternoon, and the sun glowing on the sculptures over the portals was mesmerizing. This church is a jewel. Lovely stained glass. I understand they light it from inside at...
