17 Hansa House Facade in Antwerp, Belgium

The Hanseatic League was a powerful confederation of merchants that banded together to control shipping and trade in Northern Europe from the 13th to 17th century. This Hansa House, on the corners of Suikerrui (sugar street) and Ernest Van Dijckkaai along the bank of the Schelde River, once served these traders in Antwerp. Notice the statue of Neptune above the right columns. He was the Roman god of the sea.
