La capitale del Belgio e dell’Unione Europea è una città cosmopolita a misura d'uomo strabordante di cose sorprendenti da scoprire.
Spesso sottovalutata rispetto alle altre grandi città del Vecchio Continente, Bruxelles, cuore della politica europea, è in realtà una città ricca di fascino, maestosa nelle sue antiche architetture, esuberante quando si parla di arte moderna, piacevole da percorrere a piedi e ricca di attrattive.
Sablon è un quartiere dell'area meridionale della città, una delle sue zone più suggestive e vivaci, frequentato soprattutto dagli appassionati di arredo e oggettistica. E' qui infatti che hanno sede i negozi degli antiquari più prestigiosi, nonché numerose gallerie d'arte moderna e contemporanea, oltre alle pasticcerie storiche più famose della capitale.
Il quartiere si trovava fuori dalle mura cittadine ed era sede dell'élite, per entrare in città bisognava percorrere una strada sabbiosa (sablon), che poi ha dato il nome all'intera zona.
L'area iniziò ad espandersi nel XV secolo e molti nobili cominciarono a considerarla la loro casa. 
Ben presto divenne la parte più ricca della città.
La piazza du Gran Sablon, circondata da magnifiche case signorili, è chiusa dalla bella facciata della chiesa di Notre Dame du Sablon, capolavoro dell'architettura gotico brabantina. 
La chiesa, con le sue forme slanciate ed eleganti, colpisce per gli splendidi particolari decorativi architettonici.
L'edificio esisteva fin dal 1200 come cappella della gilda dei balestrieri, ma la costruzione in stile gotico cominciò nel XIV secolo e fu portata a termine nel XV secolo, con poche aggiunte posteriori.
Notre Dame segna, per così dire, il confine tra un ambiente pieno di vita qual è Place du Grand Sablon e l'atmosfera rarefatta di Place Petit Sablon dove sembra che il tempo si sia fermato. 
Tra aristocratiche case immerse nel verde e nel silenzio, da non perdere il piccolo e delizioso giardino "all’Italiana" del 1890, chiuso da una cancellata in ferro battuto e il neoclassico Palazzo Egmont (dipendenza del Ministero degli Esteri) con il suo parco aperto al pubblico. 
Oggi è possibile passeggiare per le vie acciottolate del quartiere e assimilare un po' della sua storia.
Per il mio outfit del giorno una base total black resa più vivace da un gilet in pelliccia multicolor, mentre mi perdo tra le stradine animate che pullulano di bottegucce insolite di vario genere. Il luogo perfetto per apprezzare una delle atmosfere più pittoresche della città.

Just a short stroll from Brussels' central sights, the Sablon district has long been one of the city's most affluent and atmospheric neighborhoods. 
It is the historic upper part of the city renowned for its elegant architecture and lively antique market, the area is crammed with terrace cafes, hip restaurants, contemporary art galleries, and fine chocolatiers.
This veritable mecca of antique dealers is surrounded by former mansion houses and is always bustling. At weekends the atmosphere is particularly lively with its thriving Book and Antiques market.
Formerly, the Sablon was a large single district situated above the Senne where the great families rubbed shoulders. In the eighteenth century, the Haussmann architecture of Rue de la Régence arrived to divide the Sablon into two: the Petit Sablon and the Grand Sablon.
At the top of the hill, we find the twin squares divided by the Church of Our Blessed Lady of the Sablon. 
The construction of Our Blessed Lady of the Sablon Church finished in the 15th century, but its story began much earlier, in the time when Henry I – Duke of Brabant – who recognized crossbowmen as a guild and granted them many privileges. 
Along with that, he gave them the right to use a piece of land at Sablon, where the guild built a humble chapel consecrated to the Mother of God. 
Our Blessed Lady of the Sablon Church replaced this chapel which became famous thanks to a miracle.
The church exterior is designed in late Brabantia Gothic style and was renovated at the turn of the 20th century, and it is one of the most beautiful churches in Belgium. 
Opposite the Notre Dame Church, there is the Petit Sablon, a lovely neo-Renaissance style garden a baroque haven of peace that has a beauty all of its own thanks to its statues representing the various building trades.
Enter Egmont Park and prepare to feel like Alice in the Wonderland. 
The Egmont Palace, a mansion built in the 16th century, is also situated in the park, and it feels like a fairytale world.
Today, it's great to stroll around the Sablon. 
The capital's jet set meets up there every day for a good meal or for a drink. 
I'm wearing a total black base made more lively by a colorful fur vest, while I get lost in the animated streets that are full of unusual shops. The perfect place to enjoy one of the most picturesque atmospheres of the city.
