Pietermaai District, once the area of the Curacao well-to-do, has undertaken a huge make-over after a long period of neglect and abatement. Pietermaai District is located in the lively center of Willemstad, never more than a stones throw away from the ocean. (literally!) Pietermaai is perhaps best known for its historic cultural value on UNESCO’s ‘World heritage list’ is nowadays also the most popular neighborhood on the island! Get to know the district where history and future meets and be a witness of the renovation and revival of this historical and cultural masterpiece!
It’s impossible to visit Curaçao without experiencing Pietermaai District. Much of what makes the island unique is captured in the atmosphere of our streets. Small shops, bars, restaurants & hotels have found their home in the Pietermaai District and together they create a lively, cozy and safe part of Curaçao. Not all neglected monuments are restored yet, but that is what gives Pietermaai that special vivid and raw edge. In short, the right location for people looking for something really different.
