Blauwpoort or Catharijnepoort

Close to this unembellished gate dating from 1652 are several warehouses, as well as a magnificent aristocratic house with steps leading up to the entrance: The 18C Beverschaap. Above the main door a nymph and a Triton embrace. The pediment displays a sheep (schaap) and a beaver (bever) flanking the coat of arms.
