Nicest square of the Hague

Jan P. Sweelinck (1562-1621), componist, organist of the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam. This is what can be read under this beautiful statue posted in Sweelinckplein, to me the nicest square of the city. It has a charateristic oval shape, and is the living centre of the Duinoord district. Around this square, many protected historical monuments (about 50!!), all built around the beginning of 1900. An association of residents was even created to ensure the conservation of this place. More photos can be found on their website.
