This Church was one of the best I've seen anywhere....very grand on the inside and out. It was opposite our hotel, NH Hotel Du Sablon with a beautiful park nearby if you need to rest for a while. The Hop on Hop Off bus has a stop right outside...the Red Line

One of the nicest churches in Brussels, and close to local restaurants and bars. just up the hill from Grand Place. Sablon is one of the nicest areas in Brussels and the church does not disappoint.

Walking back from the flea market, we chanced upon this church. At the entrance you get a descriptive booklet of all the paintings and chapels/altars and monuments in the Church. Also known as Our Lady of the Chapel. All the paintings were beautiful. Pulpit was in the center of the church, very common in Belgium. On either side of the... More

The lines move fast so don't them them keep you away. The inside is too amazing for words. Wonderful piece of history for everyone to enjoy even if organized religion isn't your thing.

This is a really nice church. It has some really beautiful stained glass windows. It is good to enter and relax a bit after a long walk or to take shelter from the heat and enjoy art and tranquility.

When you think of when this structure was built where did the knowledge come from to build such an incredible structure. Make time to this it.

Climbing up to Sabon we paid a visit to Notre Dame and were not disappointed. A quiet haven in the middle of a hot day and a few moments reflection.
