The stone archway (Vredeman de Vries, 1571), these days guarding the entrance to the old Agnieten chapel, was moved from the old city carpentry yard, located at the Nieuwe Doelenstraat, to this location, in 1631, around the foundation of the Amsterdam "Illustrious" school, the University of Amsterdam's predecessor. Pretty sandstone and brick archway with reliefs of lions heads and a man's head apparently saying something. A.A. Kok designed the metal gate at the time of the chapel's overhaul in 1921. Nice object, pleasing to behold.

It is now a monument, one of 50 things in amsterdam that had very important meaning and development in the history of Amsterdam. It was a city-sponsored 'illustrous school' in the old Agnieten chapel. The chapel is the only remains of the Agnietenmonastery. It was predecessor to the University of Amsterdam and now is part of the university. The beautiful baroque gate of the Agnieten chapel has an iron gate attached that spells out "Athenaeum Illustre 1632-1921"
