The Notre-Dame du Sablon (in Dutch: Onze-Lieve-Vrouw ten Zavel) is a religious building on the edge of Sablon in Brussels. It was not until the eighteenth siècle1plus precisely at May 8, 1716 found a written record of the name Our ​​Lady of Victory, which was even then in use among the people, because we thought at tort2, it was founded to celebrate the victory of Duke John I at the Battle of Worringen.

The arrival in 1348 of a miraculous Virgin whose cult and called Ommegang procession would soon supplant the devotion and the procession to St. Michael was going to give this church a major role in the social life of Brussels.
