  • It is one of those locations you walk past regularly in Leiden and it is just such a nice view, you stop and stand for a moment to take it all in.

  • Mooie plek. Niet bijzonder
  • The Morspoort is build in 1669 for the city wall of Leiden.
  • Historic city gate, named after the dead criminals who used to hang on the way towards it, to scare people into upholding the law.
