We came across the statue of Adolfe Sax, the inventor of the saxophone, really by mistake but were very pleased we did! He was perhaps one of their most famous residents, esiecially if you like the saxophone. We do!

This statue is located in the center of Dinant. You can easily see his statue when you come across the shopping street of Dinant. There’s a museum about Sax at his back.
