The Vleeshal (the covered meat market)

Interesting
This elegant Mannerist building was constructed in 1604 by Lieven de Key. It is topped by richly decorated roof dormers, and its facade is ornamented with the heads of cattle and sheep that recall its former function as a meat market. The market hall is now one of the buildings of the Hallen Museum, an annexe of the Frans Hals Museum, and houses temporary modern and contemporary art exhibitions. In addition, its cellars are home to Haarlem's archaeological museum (the Archeologisch Museum Haarlem).
