Thanks for your like Marek :-) It's one of the stadstorens of Amsterdam, which show and let you hear the time ;-)
Is really a nice image!!! LIKE Greetings and best wishes Thanasis
Thanks for your like Thanasis!! The tower is one of the resting pieces of the former wall and the spire was added later. Rembrandt made a drawing of the tower but without the spire :-)
Alina The Montelbaanstoren is one of the many freestanding towers in Amsterdam, just like the Munttorenand the destroyed Jan Roodenpoortstoren and Haringpakkerstoren. They also called the Montelbaanstoren the 'Malle Jaap' because the hourbells chimed the whole day on every time they wanted ;)
Fraai camerastandpunt, like
