HitM | Beguinage

A beguinage can bee also a home. The Princely Beguinage Ten Wijngaerde is the only preserved beguinage in the Belgian city of Bruges. There are no more Beguines living there, but since 1927 it functions as a convent for Benedictines. 

I visited it last year but in May the daffodils were not there (plus, it is forbidden to take pictures there). So I am happy that Laura sent me this postcard.

(See here another begijnhof.)


  1. Fascinating that you are not allowed to take pictures there.

    1. To be honest, when I was there most tourists were taking pictures. But there were signs asking you not to, so I didn't.


Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
