    The Scharloo district is great for walking or driving. Beautiful old buildings restored or still need to be. Exhales the district a separate atmosphere. For photographers a super location.

    Excellent for shooting. Neighborhood where Jews of Iberian origin lived, turning the Italian mansions in colorful, as the city's habit. Boils down to a main street, Scharlooweg.

    Take some time to visit the District of Scharloo, it's more than worth it and also fun to combine with a visit to the maritime museum which likewise can be found here. Scharloo is a beautiful district in Willemstad with restored late 19th-century elegant mansions in Italian style, but in Antillean colors. Rich Jewish immigrants drew looking for wider lots to this part of the city, where they built homes for their large families. The architecture of these mansions is more sophisticated than the Dutch mansions in Punda, the constructions are more complicated and there is more ornamental work on and in the houses. Typical of the style of Scharloo is the patio to Spanish example, a feature that many homes by thorough renovations, however, no longer. Of course, these houses are also resistant to the tropical climate with bright sun and strong winds on the island.
