Anderlecht Beguinage

Implementation: 14th century

The Anderlecht Beguinage originally housed a small community of eight women and is a striking example of the use of local materials. This remarkable piece of heritage, probably one of the smallest beguinages in Belgium, reflects the importance attached to easily accessible, local materials during the Middle Ages. This practice continued into the modern era, but has been gradually lost since the 19th century.

The visit offers the chance to admire an ancient clay construction technique known as 'cob' combined with a rare Brussels example of timber frame construction dating back to the Middle Ages. Both techniques were possible thanks to the ample availability of materials in the vicinity.
