DescriptionOranjestad, which translates to “Orange City,” derived its name from the House of Orange, the ruling family of the Netherlands. Dutch architecture in Oranjestad blends nicely with Caribbean colors: Dutch colonial houses are painted green, blue, yellow and brown. This profusion of color is maintained by a local tenet that warns against coveting the color of a neighbor's house. Modern residences, broad boulevards and a park complement the city's charm.
