Figure out where this is and take a self-guided walking tour. Bring your camera - there are great examples of 'period architecture'

A guided tour around the Scharloo area provides you more insight of how Curacao helped its population to be proud of their neighbourhood again. Beautiful city reconstruction and most friendly people. A guided tour is recommended!

This is a small area with many colourful restored houses and the best to see it way is to just walk the streets and soak in the culture. There were some better restaurants in this area but they were not that easy to find.
