The head of St John the Baptist
The city museum of Woerden, located in the old cityhall (there are three, the new, the former and the former former cityhall, I am talking about the last, which is the first cityhall build somewhere in 1500) is a sculpture of the head of St John the Baptist displayed, which holds quite a history. I will tell all about it.
