Fodor's Expert Review Place du Grand Sablon

Upper Town Plaza/Square/Piazza
Place du Grand Sablon, Brussels, Belgium

Once nothing more than a sandy hill, "Sand Square" is now an elegant place, surrounded by numerous restaurants, cafés, and antiques shops, some in intriguing alleys and arcades. Every weekend morning a lively antiques market (Saturday 9–5, Sunday 9–2) 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.
