We entered here, to see the excellent shopping street, and the Dutch Quarter. So much to see and plenty of places to eat. On Close inspection, this does look a bit "Disney", As it is cement rendered, So no visible stonework.

Spent the afternoon on a rented bike, short on time, hitting as many photo opportunities as I could. This gate is gorgeous. Did not have the opportunity to go inside.
