A wonderful gothic cathedral

The stained glass windows are a sight to behold. I think more information about the history of the cathedral would have made our visit more enjoyable.

Beautiful and welcoming church to visit and walk around in. Take time to sit quiet and reflect. Beautiful outside facade too.

The lighting, architecture of the building, and general ambience have been well preserved for the period. I was visiting with a friend from Lille, France in July 2005.

Another beautiful church very close to the city center. Just in front of the church there is a small fair selling local food.

I found this gem accidentally while exploring Brussels. The architecture of the church is simply beautiful and once you enter it you can feel the majestic atmosphere of the building. Definitely worth the visit.

Interesting, but nothing like Notre Dame in Paris. The Sablon area around is worth a visit with its antique shops.

Although the Notre Dame du Sablon dates back to the 15th century, it still appears to have preserved a sense of space amid the encroaching sides of more modern buildings and is good for a short visit.
