Description :A bird's-eye view of Enkhuizen, by Georg Braun and Frans Hogenberg, with a key to locations. TRANSLATION OF CARTOUCHE TEXT: The city of Enkhuizen, in the County of Holland, as it looks at present.
COMMENTARY BY BRAUN: "Although Enkhuizen in Holland is not yet very old, it is already a famous and renowned city. It possesses an excellently situated and wide seaport that is protected by a man-made and heavily fortified dam, as is the practice in all Holland due to the raging of the ocean and the waves."
Enkhuizen, which was granted its municipal charter in 1355, was initially a centre of the fishing trade with extensive port facilities. In 1603, the Dutch East India Company opened offices here, which facilitated its blossoming into a major maritime port. By the beginning of the 17th century the city already had 25,000 residents.
Noteworthy in this plan view are two churches from the 15th century: the Zuiderkerk or Sint-Pancraskerk (33) and the Westerkerk or Sint-Gommaruskerk (2). The town hall (45) was replaced in 1688 by an exact replica of the old Amsterdam town hall. The stormy IJsselmeer and the detailed illustration of the windmills and cannon on top of the walls serve to enliven the composition.
