300 Route 36. ROSENDAAL.
4 Srzam TRamway plies in 35 min. from Bergen, via the Eendracht,
to Tholen, the capital of the island of the same name (p. 206). The Gothic
town-hall belongs to the 15th cent. and the Gothic church contains several
tombs of the 14th and 45th centuries. — In the other direction it runs vid
Santvliet, Lillo, and Merxem to (23/, hrs.) Antwerp (comp. p. 167).
42M. Wouw is a town with 4500 inhabitants. The church of
St. Lambert (early 15th cent.) has elaborately carved choir- stalls
of the end of the 17th cent., in the style of A. Quellin the Younger.

StzamM Tramway vid Steenbergen (p. 206), St. Philipsland (p. 206), and
Zype (p. 205) to Zierikzee (see below) and Brouwershaven (see below).
Zierikzee (Hétel Van Oppen; Lioyd’s agent), an old town of 7000 inhab.,
is the chief place on the island of Schouwen. In 1576 it was captured by
some 1700 Spanish volunteers under Requesens, the successor of the Duke
of Alva, who waded across the Canal de Keeten, notwithstanding the inces-
sant and galling fire of the Flemish defenders of the island, many of whom
crowded round the assailants in boats. The chief objects of interest in the
town are the three well-preserved medieval Gates, the Stadhuis, an edifice
of 1554 (lower part of the belfry a relic of an earlier building), and the
massive square tuwer (unfinished) of the Minster, begun by Ant. Kelder-
mans the Elder in 1454. — A steamboat plies twice daily from Zierikzee
to Middelburg (p. 296).
From Zierikzee (steam-tramway, see above) we may visit Brouwers-
haven, another small] town with an interesting Gothic church (15th cent. ;
choir of 1293), an attractive town-hall in the Flemish Renaissance style
(1599), and a statue of the popular poet Jacob Cats (1577-1660).
