Willemstad is the territorial capital of the Netherlands Antilles. Located on the island of Curaçao, it has an estimated population of 125,000. The historic centre of the city consists of two quarters: Punda and Otrobanda. They are separated by the St. Anna bay, an inlet that leads into the large natural harbour called the "Schottegat". Punda and Otrobanda are connected by the Queen Emma Bridge, a long pontoon bridge. The city center of Willemstad boasts an array of colonial architecture that is influenced by Dutch styles. The city center, with its peculiar architecture and beautiful harbour entry, has been made a UNESCO world heritage site.


Hi Jos! Es sind immer wieder interessante Perspektiven, die du in deinen Panoramen zeigst. Auch dieses hier finde ich wieder sehr gut gelungen. Lediglich im rechten Bildteil scheint sich noch ein Fehler eingeschlichen zu haben. Auch der Schatten an dieser Stelle stimmt irgendwie nicht. LG Werner

Ich denke der Schatten passt bei diesem schönen 360°Pano :-) LG Christian

Thanks for your reaction. Unfortunately I don't know where you see something wrong. Please let me know. If you mean the drain cover and the paving? That's how it is! You can zoom in at and see for yourself.
About the shade, the white wall is about one meter high. That's why it looks as if the shade of the pole on the top of the wall does not connect to the shade on the ground. The missing part of the shade is on the side of the wall.

Hello Jos, you're right! There are no errors in the picture. Sorry, I think I had a visual illusion. Now it's clear. Thank you for your explanation. :-)) LG Werner
