Het pand rechts (nr. 213) was het hoofdhuis van het St. Jacobsgasthuis, waar pelgrims naar Santiago de Compostella onderdak kregen. Naast een ziekenzaal en een passantenverblijf bezat het gasthuis een kapel. Achter het deurtje rechts begint de overbouwde Jacobsgasthuissteeg, waar-langs tien kameren (huisjes voor behoeftigen) stonden. De nog herkenbare achteringang van het ommuurde complex lag aan de Springweg. In het huis Valckensteijn (nr. 215-217) woonde in 1870 ds. Abraham Kuiper.
[English translation:]
The building on the right (no. 213) was the main house of the St. James Guest House, where pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela were given shelter. In addition to an infirmary and place to stay, the house also had a chapel. The path behind the door on the right leads to Jacobs Gasthuissteeg (Guest House Alleyway), along which ten apartments (houses for the needy) stood. The still recognizable rear entrance of the walled complex was on the Springweg (the street behind and parallel to...). In 1870, in the Valckensteijn House (No. 215-217) lived the Rev. Abraham Kuiper.
