Centrally in the small park, Le Petit Sablon, you can not miss the big statue of Egmont and Hoorne. This statue is made by the sculpture Charles-Auguste Fraikin.

The statue symbolises the resistance against the Spanish tyranny; both persons were killed on June the 5th 1568, in front of La Maison du Roi. (House of the King).
