Nieuwstraat

It is in this shopping street that you will find the old town hall, with a double step-gabled façade (1613). At No. 17 is a house with Poseidon and his wife Amphitrite, accompanied by two dolphins, on its façade. These mammals, with Poseidon's trident, make up the emblem of the freedom of commerce and of the battle fleet.
