THE LIVELY TOWN OF WILLEMSTAD, CURACAO

By: Rose & Ivy Journal

The capital of Curaçao is steeped in history, one that dates back to 1634, when the Dutch took control from the Spanish and set up the island as a trade settlement. Today, the past is still present in the form of stunning architectural details that nod to Holland and narrow lanes that meander through the city center. Willemstad is divided by the Queen Emma Bridge, a floating pontoon connector that knits the two sections of downtown, Punda and Otrobanda, together. For a guide on where to eat and what to do, be sure to read Journal No.11.
