Photographer's Note

TIENEN is a small city of some 30.000 inhabitants in Flemish-Brabant. It became a regional center in the 16th century after the Gete river became navigable.

Like most cities in the Low Countries, Tienen has had a rough history with numerous sieges and revolts.

In Belgium Tienen is best known for its sugar refinery and "Klontjes van Tienen" still is a standard term in most Belgian households, refering to those famous little sugarcubes.

This picture shows the Onze-Lieve-Vrouwe-ten-Poelkerk, i.e. "the Church of Our Lady of the Pool". It's a gothic church, the oldest parts of which date from the 13th century.

The statue in the front is part of a circular fountain in the middle of the Grote Markt. I haven't found any more information about the actual statue, if someone knows more, let me know.
