  HOFJE HAARLEM
by eden_teuling
 
 

This HOFJE is separated from the street by a wall with a round opening.
The two entrance gate open into the garden.

The walls of the complex in U form are plastered and painted white and the roofs are covered with blue roof tiles.

The Mainbuilding, built on the west side has an extra floor.
On the first store a memorial plaque tells the date of doundation: 1440 and the year 1787 tells us when the HOFJE was built here on this very spot.

The atic is decorated with a dormer window with pinacles on both sides.

These former medieval hospitals often developed in almshouses.

The right and the left side wings contain 3 little houses.

The HOFJE is OPEN from sun rise till sun down, free of charge.
