In the St Nicolas church is the grave of grietje Dircks - she is thought to have been Rembrandts mistress. It is a small stone on the floor of the church with only her name on it.
By the way did you know how the term "stinking rich" came into being....
The rich were buried in the church (poorer people were buried outside) and with the warm weather they began to smell! hence the term!
