Leuven - The Medieval Great Beguinage by Candlelight (Special Event)
Leuven - The Medieval Great Beguinage by Candlelight (Special Event)
Sat, 11 Dec 8:00 PM - Belgium
The Leuven Grand Beguinage, known as the Groot Begijnhof was founded in the 13th century and is believed to be one of the oldest known beguinage sites within the Low Countries. Within its walls, there are around 400 individual living quarters, originally designed for unmarried women who sought a simple, religious life. This December, for one very special night only, the Grand Beguinage will be bathed in the soft golden light of thousands of candles. Come with me, as we walk the medieval streets, and experience the shimmering light as it gently illuminates the alleys and courtyards of this beautiful medieval village. The brilliant glowing candles will make for some incredible postcards and also create a feeling of serene calmness and tranquillity.
