Shutters as curtains, sunblock and keeping unwanted eyes out of the home. This town is known in the region for always being visibly shut and has even gained the nickname "Shutter City". The closed shutters are a beautiful metaphor for how the inhabitants of Sint Willebrord are apprehensive about people who do not belong to the town. They are careful in sharing their lives with outsiders.
