Also known as the rebellious spirit of Brussels, many wonder why a statue of a little boy peeing is so famous. As well as conveying Brussels' unique sense of humour, the Manneken-Pis was a fountain that played a role in the former distribution of drinking water since the 15th century (1618 or 1619) - a system well-known in all of Europe. The current bronze statue also survived the bombardment of Brussels in 1695. He essentially became a symbol of hope.
He has many outfits that he is dressed in by an official of the state. Give the little guy a visit.
