Béguinage de la rue Quentin-Barré

There have been Beguine convents in Saint Quentin since the 13C. These institutions accommodated religious women who had not taken any vows. Today, there are six remaining enclosures, with about 40 houses around a communal garden, and six small enclosures. The one in the Rue Quentin Barré with its façades with crow-stepped gables is the most interesting, along with those in Rue de Bellevue and Rue du Moulin.
