This exceptionally large beguinage in Sint-Amandsberg (just outside the city) was built between 1873 and 1874 as a replacement for the St Elizabeth beguinage. In less than two years eighty houses were built, as well as fourteen convents, a communal house, an infirmary, a chapel dedicated to St Anthony of Padua and a church. The beguines have long since disappeared but the exceptional hushed calm remains. The Great Beguinage is one of the two Ghent beguinages listed as UNESCO World Heritage.
