The Begijnhof is one of Amsterdam's best known hofjes (almshouses). It consists of a group of houses built around a secluded courtyard and garden which provided modest homes for the Beguines - a group of unmarried religious women who lived together in a close community under vows of chastity.
The Begijnhof is the only inner court in Amsterdam which was founded during the Middle Ages.
A small place where women used tom live in the 16th century. After becoming a widow, women moved here to be protected by the community. Off course a quirky little church is included in the grounds.
