  List and staircase facades in Gorcum
by Pavlik_NL

Old town centres always have the remarkable Dutch facades that Amsterdam is so famous for. Gorcum as well has a vast collection and variety of these typical architectural house fronts and tops. Behind the staircases and clockforms is often a simple triangular roof with the typical Dutch red rooftiles. The listfacades often hav a flat roof on top of the house, though sometimes a roofchapel tells there is still a store on top.
