  • These are small apartments, 12 or 13, around a central courtyard with a well-kept garden, almost always, with a single gateway to the outside world, hidden behind the facades and canals of Amsterdam. The wealthy people of this city built them to shelter old widows, free, in the last years of life. These days are inhabited by students and artists. The Joordan has a good amount of hofjes; One of the largest is the Karthuizerhof, built in 1650 and the most famous is the 15TH century Begijnhof, which was inhabited by beguines, religious women who did not want to enter a convent. In Belgium and the Netherlands, there are more constructions of this type, since the middle of the SEVENTEENTH century due to the religious problems and the plague.
