Your tour begins at Fort Amsterdam, then it is off to Scharloo, a former residential neighborhood lined with picturesque homes built by Curacao’s wealth merchants during the 1880s. You will stop at Bolo di Bruit, known as the "wedding cake" house and the city’s most photographed building. It is now the site of the Central Historical Archives. Leaving Scharloo, you pass Pietermaai Cathedral, the largest and most impressive on the island. Your train continues by many interesting sights, including the Floating Market, where Venezuelan merchants sell fish and vegetables from their boats.
In addition, you see Queen Wilhelmina Park, the scene of frequent cultural events, and "Waterfort Arches", an imposing fortress that was the site of the Willem III Barracks. Finally, you visit Fort Amsterdam, built in 1635 to guard the vital entrance to the harbor from enemy ships. This citadel was converted into the Governor’s Palace and the office of the Central Government of the Netherlands Antilles. At the rear of the courtyard is Fort Church, Curacao’s oldest Protestant church.
