Sint Salvators Hoff

Sint Salvators Hoff 

A 'hof' is a court (courtyard) in Dutch. I suppose 'hoff' is the old spelling. And this alleyway leads to a courtyard inside.

Also, a hofje (a little court) is an almshouse, but I can't remember what Michiel said about this place, or if this used to be the entrance to an almshouse.

Steenstraat 17, Leiden
