A very elegant park. We had a walk around this park on a sunny Saturday afternoon, and thought it would be lovely in the summer to enjoy a sandwich on a bench and read a book. A pocket of tranquil in a busy city, simply lovely.

This is a lovely small park, somewhere to take a rest of walking around all day. Beautiful surroundings, especially on a sunny day.

This is a tiny place of nature, almost hidden in the middle of the city. If the weather is nice, bring a sandwich...

The perimeter of this small park is punctuated with a series of smallish bronzes. Inside in the carefully planned and landscaped garden + fountain are a series of stone statues commemorating famous people (eg Mercator, etc). Currently under restoration, probably long term (since 2014), but this doesn't detract from the enjoyment of this park

Secure some time to study each of the statues. It is extremely close to downtown. I would recommend it with no doubt.

This is a lovely quiet square, just behind Notre Dame de Sablon. Has interesting history of being on past site of old cemetery. Small stautes around the square and plinths being restored. Statues representing many artisan medieval trades. Worth a few minutes rest.

Brussels at its heart : history and realism. The statues all represent artisans and craftsmen. A small green space in the middle... exquisite
