The city centre is packed with facades and ornaments that might date back until 400 years ago.

Decorated facades have been one of the most important elements in the Amsterdam architecture. Unfortunately since the twentieth century house front decoration slowly lost its ornament function.

Luckily many of the beautiful historical city fineries are perfectly preserved in the original state for us to see.

These specific ornaments can be found at Spuiplein, Ceintuurbaan, Ruysdaelkade, Overtoom and Sarphatistraat.
