Thursday Doors – Historic Doors

Historic doors in Gouda

These doors are in the Spieringstraat in Gouda, The Netherlands.

In the first half of the 13th century the houses were build as part of the cityplan together with the harbour, the Peperstraart and the Groenweg. Located in this street since the ‘Reformation’ in 1572, but long gone and replaced by these houses, have been the Margeretha convent, the city orphanage and the Sint-Elisabethgasthuis, the abby Ten Viver and yet another abby the Minderbroederklooster

    1. Historically yes. Everybody outside Holland calls cheese Gouda cheese because Gouda is the centre of the region and we have the cheesemarket over here. We are more specific. For example the best cheese (traded on the market in Gouda) is the Stolwijkse boerenkaas; Stolwijkse farmercheese. And even better Reypenaer. If you are able to buy one of these you will taste the Gouda cheese at his best 🙂
