In the center of Zwolle there is an embankment named after the famous politician, Prime Minister Torbeke. In the 19th century, he played one of the first roles in the formation and development of the then young and very small city. Zwolle managed to preserve quite a few ancient monuments, most of which were destroyed. The most famous attraction is the tower of the Basilica of Our Lady, the construction of which took place in the middle of the 15th century. The top of the tower is decorated with a small green dome, for which the locals often call the building the Pepper Pot.
