From 1424 the Latin School was located on this spot. Here they learned arithmetic, writing and reading, Latin, logic and choral singing. This school was the predecessor of today's gymnasium. The building dates from 1599 and was designed by city stonemason Den Dubbelden and city mason Van Es. Rembrandt van Rijn was educated here.
