Spaanse Huis Naarden

The name and gable stones of the Spaanse Huis recall a terrible massacre in 1572. In that year, the Spaniards occupied the city and murdered the people of Naarden. The house that originally stood here probably served as the church of the adjacent guest house until the sixteenth century. The "Spanish House" as it stands today in Naarden was rebuilt in 1615 and from then on served for a long time as the town weigh house. Today it is home to the Weighing Museum.
