Dating back to 1307, this quiet courtyard was once home to the lay sisterhood, the Beguines - women who lived a religious life but without taking vows. In the courtyard you'll find a 15th-century wooden house, the beautiful English Church, and an impressive clandestine Catholic church, all clustered around a leafy courtyard complete with benches to sit and take it all in.
