14th century house

Now that the world basically has stopped turning due to a modern ‘plague’ I feel the need to share with you pictures of one of the oldest houses in my country The Netherlands and lucky me, I live very close to it! So, just to cheer you up I am sharing these.

The house was built in 1366 and is situated in central Leiden, right next door to the American Pilgrim museum. The bottom part of the house is the oldest part, the second floor was added later, the stones as you can see are much darker.

I hope this cheers you up, if only a bit…. hang in there!
