History:
The Simon Stevin Square is a square located in Bruges, situated between the Steenstraat and the Old Bruges. On the square stands the statue of the mathematician and physicist Simon Stevin.
From 1827 it was called the space the Simon Stevin Square. The statue of Stevin was with great ceremony and festivities unveiled on July 26, 1846. However, there was a serious setback, because the bronze statue which the contract was given to sculptor Eugène Simonis was not ready. To save the party was over but hastily a plaster statue made by the Bruges sculptors Auguste Derre, Dominique Van Weydevelt, Henri Pickery and Jules Van Nieuwenhuyze. The bronze-colored statue was placed on the day of the inauguration of the base, a pump from the former West Butcher. The bronze statue was only delivered in September 1847 and placed.
From the second half of the 20th century, the square has evolved to primarily recreational functions: it serves as a terrace for the adjacent houses, there are a number of shops and restaurants
