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.

Admire this slender gothic beauty, and then... All around you'll find antique shops,a regular antique/brocante market (posh! nothing to do with the democratic stalls at Vossenplein/pl du Jeu de Balles in popular Marolles quarter ). And as soon as the weather permits all terraces are full of people enjoying a coffee, glass of wine or beer or some nice al... More

Unlike the other cathedral, this one is exquisite. The building, and in particular the stained glass windows, stand out. A beautiful, magnificent building, with a gorgeous garden across the street.

Captivating from the inside and really beautiful on the inside. Not many tourists actually go in, but if you have time, you won't regret. After you've seen it, cross the street and enjoy the small park with a beautiful fountain (Petit Sablon Square). In the Rue Bodenbroek that curves down behind the church you will find a couple of nice... More

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.

Nice Church with magnificent architecture and well located near most of the other attractions. Not too big but worth the visit.

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.
