Belgium: Béguinage in Brugge

Today I got four postcards: one from Belgium and three from Germany.

The card from Belgium shows the Béguinage in Brugge. Béguinages were founded in the 13th century by Béguines (women having dedicated their lives to God without retiring from the world). Béguinages are enclosed communities where the Béguines can meet their spiritual and material needs. The Béguinage in Brugge is as one of the Flemish Béguinages since 1998 an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
