  • Jens Bangs Stenhus blev bygget i 1624 for Jens Bang, en typisk renæssanceskikkelse og storkøbmand, og en af Aalborgs rigeste mænd. Arkitekten er ukendt. Stenhuset er et af de bedst bevarede huse fra Christian IV’s tid. Husets hovedfacade har tre vælske gavle, ligesom hver endegavl også er vælsk. Under vinduernes bueslag findes maskehoveder i bruskbarok. Bygningen lå i renæssancen på en meget central del af byen, da varerne her kunne sejles på mindre både fra de større skibe på Limfjorden, direkte til stenhuset. Jens Bang investerede i et skib, der skulle levere tømmer og spansk salt til Christian IVs lensmand, og havde held med sin forretning.
