Basically it is an enclosed courtyard, but in reality there is a lot more to unleash. This place links itself to the ancient historical era. This sanctified place is considered to be one of the best loved places, in the city of Amsterdam. The creation of this place was initially meant for the sisterhood known as Begijntjes. It was a Catholic sisterhood without any monastic view, though the sisters used to live like the nuns. There are a lot of beautiful houses which surrounds the well kept garden where you can find some serene time for yourself and a place for deep contemplation. The busy traffic and its cacophony are not areas of concern in there.
