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.

It is a wonderful Gothic design with a lot of detail all around it. Sandwiched between the shoppers' Place du Grand Sablon and the little park, Place du Petit Sablon, it's easy to get views of it in the round. From the comments of others,...More

A lovely place with great stained glass windows and a lovely feel! Interesting history. I preferred the interior to the exterior but that might have been due to the rain.

Lovely Cathedral with especially beautiful stained glass windows. Magnificent piece of Baroque architecture, if you're going to visit one Church in Belgium, let it be this one.

Try and go when the 'vlooienmarkt' is on, all around the church, you will have a lovely time. The area is one of the prettier areas of Brussels.

Built outside the walls of the 15th century Brussels on a sandy hill, the Sablon. This flamboyant Gothic marvel originated from the devotion of the Crossbowmen, defenders of the city, for the Virgin Mary. Starting point of the world famous Ommegang procession. Very peaceful interior...More

Gothic masterpiece Notre Dame du Sablon - Gothic masterpiece. Gothic is so...gothic. Gothic is full of history, secrets, and of course of courage along thousand of years. Simple visit it, and you will understand what I am saying.

Two levels of stained glass windows which is unusual though to be honest, they failed to brighten the place as it was dimly lit. Quiet organ music was playing. Excellent wood pulpit.

A very beautiful cathedral, with a special, very high architecture and a place where you feel very good.

Fabulous stained glass windows, if you go on Sunday you may hear choral practice before the Mass as we did. Also on Sunday there is an antique market in the adjacent square.
