Open Monuments Weekend

The last monument we visited was this canal house dating from the 17th century. In 1891, a stepped gable in a Renaissance Revival style was added and it was converted into a community centre for the Jesuits of the adjacent De Krijtberg  church.

The room on the first floor has beautiful panelling, ceiling paintings, pilasters and decorated corbels.

The "Boekman Foundation", a centre for art, culture and policy, has been housed here since 1977. There was a big library too.

The narrow stairway.

And the long hallway.

From the garden you had a view upstairs of the room we just had visited.
Well this was the end of the Open Monuments Weekend, hope you enjoyed it,  I see you in a few days again, I have a little blogpause.
