Drogenapstoren, Zutphen, Netherlands - 4753
The Drogenapstoren (Drogenaps Tower) seen from the Zaadmarkt (Seed Market) in Zutphen, Netherlands.
The Drogenapstoren, originally the Saltpoort (salt gate) called, was built in 1444-1446 as a city gate of Zutphen. He has only recently served as a city gate because he was bricked in 1465. Since then, he named Drogenapstoren, named for Tonis Drogenap.
From 1888 to 1927 the tower was used as a water tower.
In the sixties, the tower got a new spire that was built in the original style. In 1983, the Drogenapstoren was made suitable as a residence.
