Willemstad is on the World Heritage List, and for good reason. The city contains many historic buildings and offers a view that nowhere in the world in this form can be found. Influences of Dutch architectural styles combined with the colors of the tropics have led to the characteristic cityscape on either side of the entrance to the natural harbor.

As a resident you tend to overlook this splendor. On May 9, 2012, I went to Punda with my camera, to see the city once again through the eyes of a tourist. Below are the results of this tourist walk from the parking place at the Waaigat, through the Breedestraat and the Heerestraat with a few excursions into the side streets.
