Lots of cafes and windows to look in on. Sundays are quieter as most retail business close down in Brussels, but the Sablon area has quite a lot of activity, as the more bohemian shops, second hand and design stores are open in teh afternoon.

Lovely church - but there is not enough to do to occupy you for too long. Impressive stained glass, lovely with the sun shining through

Not located in the city center but worths seeing it. In the neighbour you can find nice cafe, shops and small park with statues.

A church with a very interesting history, dedicated to a stolen sculpture, beautiful stained glass and amazingly intricate pulpit. Worth a walk through.

The church is breathtaking; it's located in Place du Salon, which one of the nicest spots in Brussels. Lots of places to rink a beer and have some food. The best Belgian chocolatiers have their shops there. There is an antique street market on weekends.

This is a gem. It is slightly out of the main tourist area, but well worth the visit. It is a lovely Gothic church with beautiful stain glass windows. It has beautiful Baroque chapels.

The Notre Dame is easy to find and it worth it. It is only small inside but the entry is free (they do have a donation box inside if you would like to make a small contribution).
