Antuérpia - Antwerp

Grote Markt e a Fonte de Brabo. “Diz a lenda, que um terrível gigante chamado Druoon Antigoon, vivia no rio Scheldt. Sempre que marinheiros se recusavam a pagar o “pedágio” para o gigante, como forma de punição, ele cortava suas mãos. Porém, um soldado romano, Silvius Brabo, heróicamente matou o gigante e jogou sua mão no rio…”.

 

Town Square and the Brabo Fountain. "According to a legend, a terrible giant, called Druoon Antigoon, lived on the banks of the river Scheldt. Whenever sailors on the Scheldt river refused to pay toll to the giant, he punished them by cutting off their hand. A Roman soldier, Silvius Brabo, managed to kill the giant. Brabo cut off the hand of the giant and threw the hand away in the river."
