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.

Exquisite stained glass

Well worth a stroll around to soak up the history. There's often a food & drink festival or an antiques fest at the rear.

Fit in as part of a trip to Sablon. Lovely shops, especially chocolate shops, small antiques market and just a pleasant area to be in. This is a delightful church and you must visit if in the area.

The church as much as the square hosting display discreet charm. Shops, restaurant and cafe are elegant and charming. There is an antiquities market over the weekend.

Don't miss the chance to visit this nice gotic church right in the city centre. Together with its square one of the best spots in the city.

When you first look at this church, first thought is Notre Dame in Paris, because it is same syle of building and from same period in time. But aside that, it is really beautiful and well preserved church, both outside and inside. Beautiful stained glass and huge pillars inside and toothed roofs and drains in shape of scary animals(trade-mark of... More

Notre Dame du Sablon is surely one of Brussels' most beautiful churches and quite likely its most beautiful Gothic church. What it lacks in size compared to the cathedral, it makes up for in beauty, detail, and atmosphere. Located in the Sablon district, forgoing a visit would be a mistake as you stroll around this lovely and rather posh area... More

Take your time and make a complete and relaxed tour of this beautiful cathedral. Pay attention and notice the stone sculptures of the entrance and the unique stained glass of the impressive windows. Have a look to the neighboring park located in front of the "Palais d'Egmont"

Built originally in the 15th Century, outside the then city walls, by the Guild of Archers (or possibly cross-bowmen), this is an impressive gothic church with renaissance galleries. It is huge yet comfortable and peaceful. We thought that the stained glass windows of the St Michael Cathedral were wonderful but the stained glass windows in this church (some of them... More
