Place du Grand Sablon
Place du Grand Sablon Review
"Sand Square" is where the people of Brussels come to see and be seen. Once, as the name implies, it was nothing more than a sandy hill. Today, it is an elegant square, surrounded by numerous restaurants, cafés, and antiques shops, some in intriguing alleys and arcades. Every weekend morning a lively antiques market of more than 100 stalls takes over the upper end of the square. It isn't for bargain hunters, though. For a little tranquility, pop into the beautiful Notre Dame du Sablon church or across the street to the lovely little Place du Petit Sablon garden.
