Stepping through the doorway into the Begijnhof was such a surprise. It is beautiful and so, so quiet compared to the busy streets outside. The city's oldest house is tucked in there-one of two remaining wooden houses in Amsterdam. Read the story of Cornelia Arents before you go to understand why she is buried in the gutter instead of the church.
