A lot of canals were being filled, partly because they lost their function for transport and/or trade, partly because of health reasons. The canals were an open sewer in the previous centuries, a source of many epidemics.

By 1500, the water was so polluted that they had to bring water from the river Vecht via the Amstel, in special barges. Especially in wintertime, drinking water was scarce and expensive.

De Jordaan staat gekend als de meest authentieke wijk van Amsterdam. De naam heeft verschillende verklaringen . Eén daarvan is dat het een verbastering zou zijn van het Franse “jardin” wat tuin betekent. Een andere verklaring verwijst naar het woord Jordicitie, een jurisdictie of rechtsgebied.  Een derde verklaring is dat het een verwijzing is naar het huis De Jordaan op de Lindengracht.-lt;br>-lt;br>-lt;br>-lt;br>Auteur: -lt;a href=“http://www.routeyou.com/user/view/2482.nl”>Dromos-lt;/a>-lt;br>-lt;br>-lt;a href=“http://www.routeyou.com/location/view/3641.nl”>Meer informatie-lt;/a> -lt;center>-lt;img src=“http://storage.routeyou.com/image/thumbnail/width/300/height/300/filename/NLD_Amsterdam_Jordaan_01.jpg”/>-lt;/center>

In 1895, the Lindengracht was filled in. Ever since then, one of the most popular markets has been situated here on Saturday.
