  • These traditional areas are worth a look if you can gain access - they are not all open to the public all the time. They are tranquil and pretty - an oasis in the heart of the town  more »
  • This seems to be the oldest hofje in The Netherlands, initially built in 1395. It counted 20 houses, all of them still inhabited.  more »
  • Cute courtyard originally from the twelfth century. Enter via one the doors from the alleys. It's very peaceful. Just remember people live there.
  • Um jardim interior particular que se encontra disponível para visita, mediante marcação prévia, muito bem tratado. Gostei muito!
