Everard 't Serclaes Monument, Brussels: 23 reviews and 34 photos
Everard 't Serclaes lord of Cruyckembourg , a famous alderman of Brussels, who freed the city from the rule of the Count of Flanders. In 1388 a rival Lord murdered him by chopped off one of his feet and his tongue. He was transported to the Maison de l'Étoile, where he died.
The bronze statue of 't Serclaes by Julien Dillens is located in the tiny arcade under Grand Place 8 (The Star).
Local superstition says, the statue brings good luck and grant long-forgotten wishes of all who touch it, especially his arm and the dog's nose. Be that as it may, it certainly keeps the statue shiny.
The Star formerly housed a pub where the Belgian Socialist Party was founded. Now it is home to the stylish La Maison du Cygne restaurant.
