  • In Westermarkt, 30 meters from the house of Anna Frank, a building is erected where the philosopher, mathematician and physicist French René Descartes inhabited during the summer of 1634, five years after having definitively moved to the Netherlands, where it remained until 1649, continually changing residence. A small plaque, with inscriptions in French and Dutch, placed under a window of the first floor, leaves evidence of this fact. At present, this building houses the recording studio Macloud, so we will have to make sure to see the façade that, except the aforementioned plaque, has no interest.
