Then through Punda with the beautiful monuments, on the UNESCO Heritage list for twenty years. See the governor’s palace, the Rococo Penha building (built in 1708) and the floating market with the fresh produce. Scharloo a real jewel in the city. Lots of monuments and history and of course the Wedding cake house. The most photographed monument in the City. And Pietermaai with her small Boutique hotels.
Visit the liqueur factory, where the original genuine Blue Curacao is made out of an orange. The Jews brought a juicy Valencia orange, from Spain, to the island. Which didn’t thrive and became the sour Laraha, the golden orange of Curacao. The peels are the perfect ingredient for making the orange based liqueur. Free tasting and don’t forget to buy yourself a bottle to take home to remember your visit to our island!
Spanish Water and Jan Thiel area will be the next stop. At Vista Royal you step out to a picturesque view on the Table Mountain, Fort Beekenburg, the Caracasbaai and Spanish Water area. Conquered in 1499 by the Spaniards.
