Back to video room page

 

The Grand Beguinage of Louvain is one of the Flemish beguinages that together have been added to the Unesco World Heritage list. Beguines were religious women, living an independent, but committed life outside recognized orders with vows of fidelity and poverty. The Beguinage of Louvain was built along banks of the river Dijle, and had its own church and infirmary. It was really a small city within larger Louvain, and now houses mostly students and university professors.
