  • Brussels has a lot to prove to those who wish to walk casually without that rush of beats and back of the tourists in a hurry. This small garden is very beautiful and a site that is worth to be visited. Beautiful and very well maintained.

  • This small, but very cozy Park, whose name rather amusing way translates roughly as "small sandbox", is located in the heart of the city. In the center of the Park is a monument to the Earls of Jegmontu and the Horn, which are considered national heroes. In the 16 century, they protested against the tyranny of the Spanish, under the authority of which were land of Belgium (and the Netherlands), and were executed. The park itself has the character of a national pantheon, on the perimeter of the statues of famous people of Belgium. A lattice fence adorned with small statues depicting various artisans, crafts.

  • Due to the attraction of the large place Sablon and the Church of Notre Dame du Sablon, is the great danger to overlook these architecturally beautifully designed little square. He is of the nobles who have rebelled against Spanish rule, but mainly because of the 48 pillars with each a figure of 48 guilds which then existed in Brussels also not only beautiful but also interesting with the statue. From here you have a beautiful picture of the Notre Dame you Sablon.
