Nieuwstraat

This shopping street is home to the old town hall, with its double step-gabled façade (1613). At n° 17, the façade of the house depicts Poseidon and his wife Amphitrite, accompanied by two dolphins. These mammals, along with Poseidon's trident, make up the emblem of the freedom of commerce and of the battle fleet.
