Mr Monkey scampered around the back of the Sint Janshospitaal, the hospital of St John. This is the oldest building in Bruges, and was used as a hospital and infirmary from the 12th century to the 19th. It's a museum now. The church was associated with Saint John the Baptist and Saint John the Evangalist. Just before scurrying through the alleyway to get to the front door he noticed a small panel carved with the Paschal Lamb, the symbol of Saint John the Baptist.
