  • The Famous Boy - Brussels

This is probably the most famous citizen of Brussels.

According to a legend, the boy was the only son of a rich bourgeois, who lost him in the crowd during popular festivities. After 5 days he found the boy, doing what he's still doing.

The bronze statue was made in 1619.
