historic canal

Stately old canal in the centre of Dordrecht with various small bridges and on both sides countless 17th-century buildings. The name Pottenkade refers to the potters who sold their wares here centuries ago. Close to the historic City hall, built over the Voorstraathaven and a Gothic basilica (65 metres high) which is just as crooked as the leaning Tower of Pisa. Checked fact: the city of Dordrecht (119,000 inhabitants) has 900 historic buildings, mostly concentrated in the inner city.
