View of the Middelpunts bridge and the Portuguese church (right)

View, to the west, of the Middelpunts bridge and the Portuguese church, right.
The bridge spans the Kali Besar, or Grote Rivier (big river). It leads on to the Utrechtsestraat, since renamed Jalan Kopi (2002). The Utrechtsestraat bisects two canals: Roa Malacca, where the artist Johannes Rach lived until his death, and the Rhinoceros Canal.
To the left on the other side of the bridge is a blockhouse, which functioned as a defence. To the right is the Portuguese inner church, founded in 1670 for Portuguese-speaking Christians residing within the Batavia city walls. A second Portuguese church lay outwith the city walls (Gereja Sion).
