Trompenburgh II

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a photo of the reflections of the manor house De Trompenburgh in the village of ‘s-Graveland, only a few kilometres from my home. Last Friday I passed the same place again, but this time the evening sunlight was much better, which resulted in this photo.

During the Dutch Golden Age (17th century), many wealthy townspeople started buying country estates, where they built their own summer residences. The region Gooi en Vechtstreek, just east of Amsterdam, became a popular place for these so-called buitenplaatsten (literally 'outside places'). De Trompenburgh was built in 1672 for Cornelis Tromp, son of legendary Dutch Admiral Maarten Tromp.
