  • One of the interesting things you can see in at Markt in the city centre of Bruges is the Jan Breydel en Pieter de Coninck monument. This is a tribute to the heroic figures, who played important roles in the Flemish resistance to the French in 1302. They are associated with Flemish nationalism and and identity, as is depicted in the statue of the two figures, standing proudly, jointly gripping a sword with a flag flying behind them. The monument was created by Belgian sculptor, Paul de Vigne in 1887 and is placed upon a tall and wide pedestal with reliefs at the monument base are flower beds and flags of the city of Bruges and the European Union. Overall, this is an interesting monument to see if you enjoy seeing these type attractions during your travels. Give this one a few minutes when visiting Markt, you can then move on to your other sightseeing endeavours
