Every great city has a great square, and Haarlem, though not capping the top of today's lists, was once a great trading centre, and the Grote Markt its meeting place. Lines of cafes and restaurants bid for your custom, offering you a view of the city hall, famous for the Haarlem centric paintings within, St. Bavochurch, the city's cathedral, the Hoofdwacht and the Vleeshal, which was the meat hall, centre of the meat trade.
