The old market is one of the oldest parts of Kežmarok. The foundations of the houses are from the 13th century and some of them still have the elements of so-called tower houses.
On both sides of the street are still preserved typical artisan houses of Spiš with hip roofs and thatches. The house number 46 with broad frontage was built as the House of Spiš to hold the celebrations, theatres and concerts. Nowadays it is the seat of the town’s Cultural centre.
