Secret alley dates from 1591. In the past this alley was where the shoemakers and the poorest people in the city lived. The shoemakers were also in charge of sounding the alarm bell of the cathedral. Extremly charming cozy place in the city center worth finding!
Very nice little place where you can relax a bit or take beautiful pictures. It's kinda hard to find (I walked around the area for about 30 minutes before finding the entrance) but that's the beauty of it.
On a whisper of wind we met this man named Willem. We had been looking for this beautiful sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the main streets. We met Willem over by the castle and he took a few minutes to lead us to and thru this beautiful piece of historical Antwerpen . And then he was gone. Thanks Willem for giving us a view of Antwerpe with your recounting of the stories and the memories made because of it. ❤♫♪❤
I just love this alley: right in the middle of the city centre, an oasis of peace and medieval history.
Little alleyway hard to find and not very interesting after you find it but the fun is in the finding!
