Brussels Sights

Place du Grand Sablon

  • Plaza/Square/Piazza

Fodor's 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.
