Caption


One of six banpalen (banning poles) which were erected, after 1544, in a circle around Amsterdam at a one-mile distance from the city limits (1 German mile = approx. 7.5 km). Convicted criminals and other exiles had to stay outside this area of jurisdiction. Three of the banpalen are still in their approximate original locations (Amsteldijk and Amsterdamseweg in Amstelveen, and Sloterweg in Sloten) and a fourth has been put back close to its original position recently (Spaarndammerdijk).
