Delfshaven [sub-municipality]

Delfshaven was 1389-1795 the harbour of Delft. In 1825 it became a separate municipality, until it was incorporated in Rotterdam in 1886. It is the birthplace of Piet Hein, who can still be admired as a statue. The late-Gothic church is famous, because here the Pilgrim Fathers held their last service before their departure for the New World (1620).
