Begijnhof (courtyard)

Behind a door at the Spuiplein, in the middle of the city centre, you will find a real hidden gem. The Begijnhof is the only courtyard that was founded in the Middle Ages and was a kind of convent, in which the beguines did have more freedom than nuns in a convent. The statue of the Sacred Heart by Johannes Petrus Maas in the courtyard dates from 1920.
