A peculiar symbol of Belgium, this small bronze statue of a small boy peeing has become a point of fascination for any visitor. Near the Grand Place, one can often spy a crowd of tourists taking photos of Hiëronymus Duquesnoy the Elder’s 1618 work. The stuff of legend standing only 61cm high, the true story of why there’s a statue of a boy urinating into the fountain is unknown. A tradition has been created by the Friends of Manneken-pis who dress him in hundreds of costumes over the course of the year.
