Willemstad is one of the many lovely fortified towns in the Netherlands. It was founded by and named after William of Orange. It has the shape of a seven-armed star.

The town is well-kept and there are many monuments to be seen, such as the town hall and the Mauritshuis, the hunting lodge that was built by William´s son Maurits. You can see more in this site:


The octagional church is the first church built in the Netherlands for keeping protestant ceremonies. It lies in the heart of the city, surrounded by a moat.
