St Antoniesbreestraat was once a busy street, but it lost many of its old buildings during the metro's construction. One of the originals still standing is the Pintohuis, once owned by a wealthy Sephardic Jew, Isaac de Pinto, who had it remodelled with Italianate pilasters in the 1680s. It's now a bibliotheek (library) – pop inside to admire the beautiful ceiling frescoes.
