This municipal monument stands on one of the most beautiful historical places of Leiden: here on the early morning of 3 October 1574 the Sea Beggars (Watergeuzen) entered Leiden. This brought an end to a months-long Spanish siege, under which the Leiden population suffered a great deal. The Sea Beggars arrived here, bringing herring and white bread with hodgepodge stew to the starving population. This is still a meal favoured by many people of Leiden on 3 October.You will find many picturesque monuments, canals, museums and courtyards in this neighbourhood. Shops, cinemas, cafes and restaurants are within walking distance. Leiden Central Station is a 5-minute bike ride away.
