‘Kortrijk - Inside the Beguinage - 4’

This time in my main photo one of the colourful artificial birds that were set up all over the town of Kortrijk.
This one also in the beguinage.
Two street views of the beguinage in the WS.

Wikipedia states about the beguinages:

A beguinage is a collection of small buildings used by Beguines. These were various lay sisterhoods of the Roman Catholic Church who sought to serve God without retiring from the world.

A beguinage comprises a courtyard surrounded by small dwellings. It is often encircled by a wall and secluded from the town proper by one or two gates.

The first beguinages were set up in the 12th century in Liθge, Belgium.
They are to be found in an area roughly corresponding with present-day Northern and North-Eastern France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Western and North-Western Germany.
