Groot Begijnhof, Leuven, Belgium by 


Groot Begijnhof (or Great Beguinage) in Leuven was originally founded in 13th century, giving home up to 300 Begijns (or Beguines, that means women living a religious life but still keeping their own property and supporting themselves) in 17th century. The oldest brick houses seen today date from the 16th century. The entire complex (except for the church) serves now as a University residential quarter for students, professors, employees of the University as well as foreign guests.
I love this peaceful place.

October 2007. Leuven, Belgium.

    Great shot. Nice history to the shot too. Like how you are led down the path to the back of the shot.
