Description
Building of the university. Leiden got its university in 1575. This was housed in the chapel of the former Dominican convent on the Rapenburg. Since the Reformation left by the nuns and the building was empty. Halfway in the chapel a floor was laid, which is shown by the halfway interrupted windows. The Academy Building is still used for lectures and official occasions such as graduation and promotion. The first clocks had only one hand. #auditorium #church #diaconessenklooster #dies_natalis #hortus #nonnenbrug #nonnensteeg #rapenburg #rijksmonument #university #zweetkamertje
