17th Century House ""Leeuwenburg" @ Alkmaar, The Netherlands.  Fun fact;  Jacob Leeuwenburg bought the building in 1702 from the heirs of Gerrit Floriszoon Wildeman (founder of the Wildemanshofje). In 1707, Leeuwenburg had the façade altered, so that it came out for the adjoining building. The facade is made in baroque or Louis XIV style. In 1731 a new neighbor came to live next to Leeuwenburg: Sijbrant van Haften. He noticed that the eaves of Leeuwenburg stood out and went in front of his own façade. The roof edge of Leeuwenburg would stick 17 inches (that is approximately 44 cm) in front of his facade. After Van Haften had complained to the municipality, the municipality, after an investigation in December 1731, agreed with him. As a result, Leeuwenburg had the coat of arms of Alkmaar placed on his facade with the two lions facing away from the weapon. In the city coat of arms the lions normally function as shield holders who hold the shield with their front legs. By placing the lions with their butt to the weapon, Leeuwenburg insulted the city. The municipality never adjusted the situation; the façade sticks to that of the neighbors to date.. . . . . . . . . . . . . #eurotrip #travelgram #bbctravel #travel #instatravel #netherlands #holland #beautifuldestinations #travelstoke #wanderlust #theglobewanderer #cityphotography #cityscape #cityview #loves_landscape #travel #traveladdict #travelling #travelphotography #postcardsfromtheworld #worldtravelbook #bbctravels #17thcentury #alkmaar #welivetoexplore #discoverearth #house #casa #streetphotography #picoftheday
