In the middle of the Groenplaats you see the statue of the master of painters : Pieter Paul Rubens.

It dates from 1843.

You can visit the Rubens house at the Wapper (direction of the Meir,

Last weekend (18 April 2004) there was a big family reunion of the Rubens family. More then 500 family members came to the Groenplaats for a family picture in front of the statue of their relative Pieter Paul Rubens. It was on National television and in the Monday newspapers.
