Beguinage, Bruges Overview

The Beguinage was once home to the beguines, emancipated laywomen who led a pious and celibate life. Situated at the edge of a canal, the first house of the cluster has been converted into a small museum. It is a UNESCO word Heritage site from the 13th century.

Home to the Sisters of the Order of Saint Benedict, the white washed walls of the Beguinage symbolise tranquility. This cluster of houses was founded in 1245 as a home to women from all backgrounds dedicated to charity work, yet not bound by any religious vows.  Stroll around the lush green courtyard gardens as you soak in the quaintness of the scene.
