Delft is a city with a rich history and a wealthy past. Its look today was defined in 1536, when lightning struck the spire of the New Church, starting a fire that destroyed two-thirds of the town. While all the buildings that ring the Market Square have cellars dating from before the fire, what you see above ground made of brick was built after 1536.
The giant, Gothic New Church boldly presides over the town and the square. Inside are buried the beloved Dutch ruler William I of Orange and the Dutch royalty that succeeded him.
Could this street be any cuter? #chandlerbing
Darling doors of Delft.
We walked to the east end of town to check out the Oostport. The gate was built around 1400 and it is the only remaining city gate in the city.
Want to know what it is now? Someone's house! Coolest. House. Ever.
Back on the square to hunt down a magnet.
When in the Netherlands, take pictures of your kids in huge clogs.
