Munttoren - Heinen Delftware
The Munttoren, rebuilt in Amsterdam Renaissance style around 1620
Built between 1480 and 1487 as part of the medieval city wall it was part of the Regulierspoort, consisting of a gate with a tower on each side. Back in the 17th century, the tower was used to mint coins which explains where the name Mint tower (munttoren) is coming from. With a spire designed by Hendrick de Keyser the carillon consists of 38 bells that chime every 15 minutes.
