Eglise Notre Dame Du Sablon, Brussels

4.5
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.

  • Is the most famous cathedral in Brussels. Definitely a place that must be visited by architecture, the neighborhood that is very nice and the beautiful richly decorated interior.

  • Mirabile typical Gothic church of the region with extraordinary stained-glass windows that leave the visited speechless when they are illuminated by the sun and cast lenloro long colored shadows on the church floor. Do not miss the richly decorated chapels and the outer amazing, not only the facade. Too bad the place is used or how to market or parking! For a just visit takes 45/60 minutes! @gargio76
