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.

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...

Imagine our surprise to find that even this church was locked after walking in the rain for hours in the centre of Brussels and finding there is nothing for Tourist to do in the city on a MONDAY! Yes, you can shop an eat and drink but Cultural things are locked away. never got to see this church, alas.

This is a quite splendid church well worth a visit. the old wooden pulpit and modern organ casing is very similar to the Cathedral in Brussels but the exterior stonework and the stained glass windows are well worth a look, and all is on a more modest scale than the cathedral

I have visited many churches in Europe and after a while they can merge together. However, I really was struck by the feel of this church. I sat and just took it all in. The stain glass windows and the beauty of the church welcomes you in and makes you want to stay. I was really impressed. Well worth a... More

I wouldn't have set out to just go see this but it is lovely to see and rather spectacular but also close to some interesting restaurants/cafes and chocolate stores.

Between the 2 Sablons, near the Palais de Justice and on the tram line, this is worth a little visit on route. It has recently been cleaned and restored outside and is very attractive inside. The stained glass window are impressive.

Beautiful gothic church in the heart of Brussels and in the nicest area that I saw close to a park and lovely cafes around. Do not miss the stained glass!

If you needed to travel an hour to get to this church, things would be different, but this charming gothic building is in the heart of Brussels and just a few steps away for the many other sites. There is no reason not to visit.
