Beguinage

Local nameBegijnhof Ten Wijngaerde
LocationBruges, Belgium

This complex was a home to Beguines, women of a Christian spiritual movement of the 13th century. They did not take any formal vows but decided to devote their lives to Christ, live in poverty and take care of the sick and poor. It is the only preserved béguinage in Bruges.

Since 1927 it serves as a convent of Benedictine nuns and it offers a change of pace with its refreshing garden.
