Front Description : In front of the entrance of the Antwerp cathedral, a monument was set up for Nello and Patrasche, the two main personages from the tale "A dog of Flanders". The tale is very popular in Japan due to a cartoon series which was transmitted in 1975 on the Japanese TV.
Nello was a poor orphan who helped its uncle each morning with bringing milk to Antwerp. One day he saves the live of an abandoned dog, Patrasche, who as from then will never leave Nello. In spite of the many setbacks, the poverty the suffering, Nello remains honestly and sincere. This tale is considered by many as a symbol of the friendship between Japan and Belgium.
