Amsterdam

Begjinhof

This, the oldest square in Amsterdam, has seen some strange comings and goings from the odd ghost to the Queen of England.

Begjinhof

In 1971 the last “beguine” died, ending an unusual Catholic community that had existed within this square since the Middle Ages. Strange then that this has also been the home of Amsterdam’s ‘English Reformed Church’ since 1571, from where several of the Pilgrim Fathers left on their voyage to America.
