Munttoren en Muntplein
The Munttoren en Muntplein of the former Regulier's Gate was built around CE 1480. Regulier's Gate was part of the old town rampart. It became obsolete when the city expanded its borders southwards at the end of the sixteenth century. After the great fire of 1618, the lower part was left intact. The city allowed architect Hendrick de Keyser to reconstruct the wooden upper part. The brothers Hemony, famous for their bell-foundry, were commissioned to make the carillon. The tower was used as a minthouse in the 17th Century.
