Again, a picture out of my archive.

Bridge and gate the Beguinage Bruges, a very quiet place in Bruges

The'Princely Beguinage Ten Wijngaarde', as the beguinage is called in fact, was erected in 1230. The beguines themselves were replaced since long by Benedictines.
Sometimes they are to be seen in 15 th century clothing’s. A museum is situated in the little beguine house near the gate. Therein you can see the way how the Beguines used to live. The entrance gate of the beguinage is dated from 1776.Most of the houses date from the 17th and 18th century. The little Sint-Elisabeth church is partially dated from the 13th century. Its history is quite animated. At the time of the Calvinistic government it was degraded to a hayshed. In 1584 it was devastated by fire.

I hope that you enjoy it
