Amsterdam - Begijnhof

Ondanks de vele bezoekers is het Begijnhof in hartje Amsterdam nog steeds een idyllisch plekje. Een weldadige rust straalt er van de huizen, die gegroepeerd zijn rond een kerkje en twee bleekvelden. Vroeger werd hier de was te drogen gelegd. Al ruim zes eeuwen leven hier uitsluitend vrouwen op dit hof. Op 23 mei 1971 overleed de laatste Begijn, Zuster Antonia, op
84-jarige leeftijd.
