The statue of Jan Breydel looks to the full moon rising over the Provincial Court building and Markt Square in Bruges (Brugge). Breydel, leader of the butchers, along with Pieter de Coninck, head of the weavers, led a rebellion against the French in 1302 and are considered heroes of the town. The Markt has been used as a place to buy, sell, or barter for goods since 958. When we visited an Easter carnival was ongoing, with cheesy rides for the kids.
