The Grote Market

As well as the Public weigh house (Waag ) which stands in the centre, this square has a collection of four 17C houses one of which is pierced by a decorated vaulted passage (1605), theKerkboog . Near to the chevet of the church, the old Latin school ( Latijnse School ) is an attractive construction from 1545. The bronze statue ofMariken van Nieumeghen stands on the square: she was the heroine of a religious drama dating from the end of the 15C.
