1. Hofje van Gratie

Show sight on map

The Hofje van Gratie is one of the four remaining courtyards in the city of Delft, in the Dutch province of South Holland. There used to be seven courtyards. The Hofje van Gratie was a courtyard for couples over the age of 50 without children, and was founded in 1575 by Pieter Sasbout. At first the Hofje was located on the Korte Geer, but due to the expansion of the Armamentarium it was moved to its current location on the Van der Mastenstraat. The land was made available free of charge. On October 12, 1654, an explosion - the Delft thunderclap - had taken place in the powder magazine between the Geerweg and the Doelenstraat. The new courtyard on the Van der Mastenstraat was given seven houses instead of six.

3. View of Delft

Show sight on map

View of Delft is an oil painting by Johannes Vermeer, painted ca. 1659–1661. The painting of the Dutch artist's hometown is among his best known, painted at a time when cityscapes were rare. It is one of three known paintings of Delft by Vermeer, along with The Little Street and the lost painting House Standing in Delft. The use of pointillism in the work suggests that it postdates The Little Street, and the absence of bells in the tower of the New Church dates it to 1660–1661. Vermeer's View of Delft has been held in the Dutch Royal Cabinet of Paintings at the Mauritshuis in The Hague since its establishment in 1822.
