Long Description:

"Huis De Pinto, ook bekend als Pintohuis, is een voormalig woonhuis uit 1605 aan de Sint Antoniesbreestraat in Amsterdam. Het is ontworpen door Elias Bouman. Het huis is genoemd naar de familie De Pinto, die er sinds het eind van de 17e eeuw woonde, een rijk Portugees-joods geslacht van kooplieden en bankiers. De De Pinto's worden soms ook wel de Rothschilds van het 17e eeuwse Amsterdam genoemd. David en Isaac de Pinto gingen op vriendschappelijke voet om met stadhouder Willem IV en financierden voor hem een oorlog met Frankrijk."
