  Beguinage
by speed4turtles
 
 

Behind the Church of Our Lady is the Begijnhofstraat. On the right is the entrance of the St. ELISABETH BEGUINAGE.
Past the gate,one immediately feels the cosy atmosphere that dominates the Beguinage. The Beguinage consists of about 40 small houses dating back to the 17th century. Nowadays, the last beguine and a couple of aged ladies are still living there.
