Bruges Almshouses (Godshuizen)

Between the 15C and early 20C, almshouses were a real institution in Bruges; these charitable houses were to be found everywhere. They were hostels for the old or poor, and funded by corporations. The low brick houses, generally built in rows and whitewashed, are modest-looking. Each of their façades has a door and window with a dormer window on the upper floor.
