The city hall in Leiden dates back to the middleages. But the marvellous facade wasn't added to thebuilding until 1597. The picture shows you the new city hall, which was built in 1940.

The Morspoort is one of two survivors out of a total of eight gates that once gave access to the town of Leiden. It's a nice example of Renaissance architecture.
