The Morspoort is one of the eight original city gates of Leiden. It was built in 1669 to replace a wooden building - and now is a state monument. Next door is an old garnison which now is a hotel. Not to be missed on a Leiden city walk.

I was there and walked around this place. It was ok, you can visit and take some pics. Maybe good to visit one time if you visit Leiden.

This is a nice small building to walk through with cafes and bars on the other side where you can sit outside on a nice day. It's been well-maintained over the years and there's a big black canon outside that you can have your photo taken with, if you so desire. It's nothing exciting, but it's a nice part of history.
