The Heiligeweg (Holy Way) was once part of a route that pilgrims took to the spot where the Miracle of Amsterdam occurred. Halfway along, and directly opposite Voetboogstraat, you'll see the Rasphuis Gate , which led to a correctional institute in medieval times. The pedestal bears the sculpture of a woman with two criminals chained at her side, under the Latin word castigatio (punishment).
