prison

The Noordsingel located between the Oude Noorden and the Agniese district in Rotterdam, looks like a peaceful green lung in the city. But appearances can be deceptive. That much is proven by the Courthouse from 1898 and the nearby Prison from 1872. Cultural historians say that the prison, built in the form of a star, has major international architectural and historical importance. Special: complex had the first prison church in the Netherlands. At this moment, project developers are busy refurbishing the prison. The cells will be turned into modern apartments.
