In 1634, French philosopher and mathematician René Descartes lived at 6 Westermarkt, just steps from the famous Anne Frank House. He felt at home and spent more than 20 years here, writing most of his major works in the Netherlands. Today Descartes' House (Maison Descartes) is a private residence, though visitors still come to see Descartes’ Amsterdam abode.
