After you've seen it, cross the street and enjoy the small park with a beautiful fountain (Petit Sablon Square).

The adorable gothic catedral with the characteristic style and glass stained windows is open for visitors all the time. It stands on the Sablon square which is a popular meeting point for locals and art lovers with its many antique stores, coffee shops amd even fashion.

This is a picturesque church near the center of Brussels and although it was nice to visit and free it's not overly memorable, especially if you've seen a lot of churches in a short period of time.

This is a Gothic masterpiece and is a short distance from the Royal Palace buildings and the Petit Sablon Gardens. Easy access by tram. As beautiful inside as out, and maintained to a high standard.

This large church has a great history (google it) and the most amazing stained glass windows on 2 levels. In front is a small antiques market on a Saturday. Just down the road from the Musee des Beaux Arts.

A hidden gem! This church is beautiful, especially on those hard-to-find sunny days in Brussels when the stained glass is really lit up on the inside. Definitely worth a stop!
