It is one of the most beautiful buildings in the city. It was built for John Speymann, the mayor at the time, who was a wealthy businessman and patron of the arts and his wife. It was built before the year 1609 and was designed by Abraham van den Blocke who also designed some of the sculptures which were all placed in 1618. It is famous for its beautiful façade, which you can see in the photos. According to legend sometimes in the hallways you can see the figure Judyta's spirit that whispers "Be fair, do not be afraid of anyone." Also the building is very well maintained and clean. It seems to have been recently built.
