The Beguinage (2)


The area of the Béguinage covers 2 hectares altogether. The entry portal, of baroque style dates back to~ 1690.

Most of the houses are equally of the 17 ème century, it is evident that a framework as this one is a source of privileged inspiration for number of local artists, again these days. One counts 150 houses.
