Hoorn's Religious Heritage walk: religious statues and wall panels

5. Veemarkt

kaart We go Left and then Right to walk along the imposing façade of the Pietershof. We come into the Veemarkt (cattle market) and cross over to look at nr.19, a white house next to the Rabo Bank with an interesting stone, wall tablet.

House number 19 Anno MDCCXXIII

On the tablet it says:

Anno MDCCXXIII
Synte Pieters Scheepye mag hellen maar niet vergaen op Gods woort blyf ick vast staen.

St. Peter's ship may list but not founder, on God's word I remain steadfast (I put my trust).

This building was once a nunnery but was later used for market storage.
