Ancien béguinage de Turnhout

Thought to have been founded in the 13C and rebuilt in the 16C after a fire, this is a charming complex with houses set around a small triangular plaza overlooked by a Baroque church. At no 56, a museum devoted to the begijnhof recounts the history of this Beguine convent which is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
