  • On the way towards the Brussels Central station walk from the Supreme Court. So wide is not square. When we went the stalls had several. You might also try the one time famous chocolate shops, so. I think must-see spot on.

  • Square located in the neighbourhood of Sablon, from genteel, that recalls a bygone era, overlooked by chocolatiers (including the shop of Macha), smart shops and bistros. From the square you can see the beautiful gothic church of Notre Dame du Sablon.

  • nothing like to dive back into this tourist district. Some nice art galleries but also gourmet signs including the essential Marcolini.
