We headed to the lovely neighborhood of Sablon at the suggestion of a friend who lives locally. Set on a hill, this charming area has indeed plenty to see and do. Our first visit was to the Petit Sablon square, an adorable small square with a beautiful fountain at its center and a wrought iron fence with small sculptures on its pillars, surrounded by statues and pretty landscaped gardens. Right in front is the imposing 15th Century Église Notre Dame de Sablon. If you like chocolate, and bearing in mind you are in the country that has the very best, try Passion Chocolate, a shop just two blocks away. As you continue to explore the area, walk to the viewpoint at Mont des Arts (behind Magritte’s museums) and enjoy the views to the pretty rectangular square right below and the Grand Place in the distance. Around the viewpoint there are one or two bars with outdoor seating, where you can grab something to drink and enjoy the place’s atmosphere. Nearby, likeable Rollebeek street has plenty of cafes and restaurants for a meal and on Rue Lebeau you can enjoy first quality books at world renowned Taschen.
