In the footsteps of a Leuven beguine

Op stap met een begijn

On a walk through the Great Beguinage of Leuven (UNESCO World heritage), a beguine will tell the story of her daily life in the 17th century. 

You will hear true, sometimes mischievous stories during this walk in the splendidly restored beguinage of Leuven with the Saint John the Baptist Church, infirmary, Table of the Holy Spirit, houses and convents.
