Royal Entrance

Posted by Illuci (Hurdegaryp, Netherlands) on 5 August 2007 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Leeuwarden was proud of being the dwelling place of a number of Orange princes during the 17th and 18th century; of course they and their families had a special entrance to the church, decorated with the Dutch Lion and an orange tree. It must be said that the poor of the city also had a special church gate, not to enter the church (they used the common entrance) but to receive bread and clothing, I show you that another time.

Dear friends, I'm not p-blogging until August 15 due to sailing activities, I posted until today
