Notre Dame du Sablon, Brussels
The Église Notre Dame du Sablon (Church of Our Lady of Sablon) is a pretty Late Gothic church in Brussels.
Built in the 15th and 16th centuries, Notre Dame du Sablon is noted for its four-fold gallery with brightly colored stained-glass windows (illuminated from the inside at night), which make a striking contrast with the gray-white Gothic arches and walls.
Also worth seeing are the two baroque chapels decorated with funeral symbols in white marble.
Finally, don't miss the celebrated statue of St. Hubert with an interesting history: It was once stolen from Brussels and taken to Antwerp but was seized and returned to the church in 1348, where it has remained ever since.
