Create an itinerary including Eglise Notre Dame Du Sablon
Experience the opulence of Eglise Notre Dame Du Sablon, which has long been a place of worship for the elite of Brussels and serves as a remarkable example of Brabantine Gothic architecture. The land was first consecrated when the Noble Serment of Crossbowmen, a local guild, decided to turn their exercise space into a modest chapel. However, this humble church was replaced in the 15th century, with an interior that was completed in the 17th century. The cathedral is covered in carved reliefs and ornate masonry, while the interior reflects the efforts of the wealthy families to bring the richness of daily life to the church service with gilded Baroque chapels. The fanciful wood carvings on the altar and pulpit are the work of a 19th-century artist, Auguste Schoy. After a church tour, sample some of the sweets from the surrounding chocolate shops. Put Eglise Notre Dame Du Sablon and other Brussels attractions into our Brussels trip itinerary maker app, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Nice small church. The glass-window paintings were beautiful and eye-catchy. QR-code guides, directing to information and background about the things displayed in the church was helpful.
  • An impressive gothic architecture dating from 15th century. Really impressive stained glass windows with stunning paintings which look almost alive. Take your time to go through the paintings, they are worth admiring. There is a beautiful pulpit, a huge organ and baroque chapels to complement the gothic style. Equally impressive and detailed carvings from outside too. Very calm and peaceful to sit inside.
