Bruges has dozens of Almhouses (Godshuizen) which where established in the 14th century by the wealthy people or guilds for the poor, elderdly & widows.

Almhouses are built like mini-beguinages small white washed houses clustered round a central courtyard and also listed as world heritage by Unesco.

Most are still occupied by elderly people so please visit respectfully.

Certainly worth incorporating into a stroll around Bruges.
