Thursday Doors – Gouda Doors with a History

Doors with a History

My thirteenth entry to Norms Thursday Doors. Doors with a History. The Catharina Gasthuis (The Catharine Hospital) was originally built in the 13th Century and used for various purposes since. In 1947 it became home to the Museum Gouda. The door, called the gate of Lazerus, is designed by the German Gregorius Cool who lived from approx. 1570 to 1629.
