The big beguinage, 1

Not really very far away from the centre but a really quiet and peaceful part of Leuven: the beguinages.
Big beguinage (Groot Begijnhof)

This beguinage contains not only original houses of the former beguinage, but also houses that didn't fit in the city anymore because new buildings where built and area developped
