However you are downtown Bruges, as soon as you cross the little bridge leading to the Beguinage (Begijnhof) : little white houses grouped around a little park. Discover the history of these women is very interesting and not enough known

It was interesting to see how and where the sisters had lived. It’s only 2€ and full of information. It’s was a contrast to the markets and restaurants in Bruges.

A lovely tree-filled square surrounded by charming, very old white houses. It's a lovely spot to take a breather from the bustle of Bruges.

We stumbled upon the Beguinage while waiting to do the brewery tour and it was something of a contrast. There are signs everywhere requesting silence and these and the enclosed nature of the area give the area a certain religious gravitas. if you want twenty...More
