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.
