Van Eyck and the Flemish Beguinages
In the Middle Ages, the tradition of the Beguinages developed. There are architectural complexes to house beguines. Those are religious women who dedicated their life to God and choose to live together in communities.
The Flemish beguinages consist of houses, churches, ancillary buildings and green spaces. Also, the beguinages are a place of unparalleled serenity, ideal for a quiet and relaxing walk.
Jan Van Eyck’s daughter, Livina Van Eyck, joined a beguinage in the province Limburg, where she completed a spiritual journey.
