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.

Attended several concerts inside, I like the architecture and decoration, as well as good acoustic. Nice to admire it from the surrounding square.

Very beautiful church and well maintained. Highly recommended. Exudes peace and tranquility. The construction also very nice. If you have time it is worth the visit.

Absolutely beautiful! We walked around the church twice, just to enjoy the beautiful stained glass! Also saw the quaint antiques market (Sunday) and then across the street to a Belgian classic: le Pain Quotidien, for a café au lait. Fabulous!

Not quite as stunning as it's Paris namesake, this is a really interesting cathedral with some stunning architecture inside and very ornate carvings.

There are a lot of old churches to visit in Belgium, and you can distinguish different architectural periods, some of them are from medieval times, all of them are worth visit, Notre Dame du Sablon is a a 15th century Gothic church, just amazing, the facade you may enjoy it from cafe's around the sablon area :)

We had been to a few churches by this point but we felt while it was very beautiful it was nothing compared to other churches we visited. Still a lovely sight.

It turned out to be the service time when we visited the museum. The building itself is nice and very close to the Sablon square and Le Petit Jardin.

It was closed the day we were there, but it was still a glorious gothic church to view from the outside.
