Description

The church of Notre Dame du Sablon (Our Lady of Sablon) is an outstanding Gothic church located in one of the most elegant neighbourhoods, The Sablon Neighbourhood. Being one of the finest remaining examples of Brabant Gothic architecture in Belgium, the church was renovated in the fifteenth century and today it’s known for its amazing exterior decorated with detailed sculptures, as well as for the 11 magnificent stained glass windows from the interior. While you’re there, you can visit the chapel of the Tour and Taxis family from 1540 and take a walk in the neighbourhood to explore the restaurants, terraces and the best chocolate shops in Brussels.
