The old city centre, Edam
The old city centre of Edam within the borders of the old city walls is nowadays protected by the government, as a number of notable buildings survive in good condition including Grote Kerk or St. Nicholaaskerk, the town hall and the Edam Museum. The entrance, with the heavy double doors and the surrounds of sand stone, are in Louis XIV style. The coat-of-arms of Edam stands above the doorway and the beautiful wooden tower gives it a light-hearted element.
