Mr Monkey visits the Begijnhof, 19th September

"It's a lovely space"

Mr Monkey looking across the courtyard of the Begijnhof Mr Monkey looking looking at the north-east gate of the Begijnhof

Mr Monkey looked around the central courtyard, which is surrounded by rows of small houses. From 1245 to 1937 each house was the home of a beguine, a woman who lived like nuns but without the binding vows. Mr Monkey followed all the other visitors to the gate in the north-eastern corner of the Begijnhof.
