The Morspoort is situated next to the hotel where we sleep. The Morspoort is the western access to the city centre. In front of the gate you see a huge black canon, that's the place to make a picture. A beauty!

This is one of the two remaining gates to the historic city of Leiden. Our hotel was right next to this and we could see it from our window. Very cool part of Leiden's history.
