Newly restaured stained glass, gothic stonework. If you are lucky you will find one of the free leaflet about the history of the church on a stand at the back of the church. There is also a stand where you can buy postcards and history books but only till 17:00. A nice place for meditation.

Exceeded our difficulty entering, because of the schedules, a monument that is worth knowing, either by outward beauty, either by inner beauty. In Brussels, I think this is one of the few places that is worth seeing inside.

This Gothic church is conveniently located off the Place du Grand Sablon. You will find antique markets on the square during the weekends as well as many wonderful chocolatiers and restaurants located around the square and side streets. The colorful, intricate stained-glass windows of the church are remarkable. We were impressed by the combination of simplicity and detailed work inside... More

This is a great place to take in the art and architecture that was put into the building of these great churches. It is a favorite of ours when visiting. The lovely park outside is a lovely bonus!

Amazing building from the outside, the interior doesn't quite match but is still quite impressive! Nice views back down on grand place from this area too!

Great glasspaintings and there were really many of them. We visited during a service, so we were not able to walk around.

Since EVERYBODY is paying a visit to the Sablon, the curch is part of the route so a glimpse is a sure thing.

I loved this gothic church at first glance. Beautiful outside and splendid inside too. The old stained glass windows are simply gorgeous and are worth the visit themselves. On Sunday evenings (6 p.m.) Mass is sung by superb sopranoes, but you can't go around visiting the church . Anyway the whole atmosphere is pure magic for those who admire art... More
