I stood with my back to the lion bridge

History:

Lionstreet;

The lion bridge interrupts the Leeuwstraat and runs over the Speelmansrei.
The latter was once called 'lee', from which the name of the bridge and the street are derived.

The current bridge dates from 1627 and was built by the Bruges mason-master Jan de Wachter. Around 1628-1630 the city council looked for something to embellish the bridge and placed an order with Jeroom Stalpaert. He produced two Bruges lions. In 1792 the bridge was officially named "Leeuwbrug". At the end of the eighteenth century the lion was pushed into the water on the western parapet and replaced by a new one. The second lion was replaced in 1955 due to the poor condition of the stone.
