Fotomuseum aan het Vrijthof
Spaans Gouvernement (Spanish Government)
The Fotomuseum is located in the Spaans Gouvernement building; a 16th century chapter house, where Charles V stayed during his visits to Maastricht between 1519 and 1550. Over centuries, the building underwent several large-scale renovations after which it gained its current structure. In the inner courtyard, you will find carved portrait medallions of Charles V and his wife, Isabella of Portugal, serving as a reminder of that time. The Spanish Government is open every day (except Monday) between 10:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
