Bruges Begijnhof

Recommended
A peaceful haven not far from a canal and reached via a lovely classical door, the "Beguine convent of the vine" was founded in 1245 by Marguerite of Constantinople, countess of Flanders. This place of prayer is arranged around a large rectangular green space under the shade of trees that is scattered with daffodils in spring. Begijnhof includes a 17C church and some white houses that belonged to the Beguines, who have now been replaced by the Benedictines.
