"Place du Petit Sablon" Place du Petit Sablon Tip by scottishvisitor

Place du Petit Sablon, Brussels: 35 reviews and 70 photos

This little park is a real eye catching gem it is situated in Sablon Square where forty eight little statues ring both the square and the park. I will place a picture of the statues in an albulm as I realise while writing I did not include one. The park is small but well tended with many statues of Counts of Brussels framed by natures best greenery. The centre piece is a statue and water fountain commemorating the Counts of Egmont and Hoorne who were executed in the nearby Market Place by order of Philip ll of Spain in 1568. We enjoyed our stroll around here - a little bit of peace a step from a noisy city.
