A ghost haunting the chapel

It is an impressive stronghold of charm in the center of Amsterdam, just 5 minutes from the Plaza Damm. It is easy for the entrance to go unnoticed, Pay attention to the picture below with the entrance, you can access it from the pedestrian street Kalverstraat, which is next door. The Beguines were women and very devout Catholics ve lived there, dedicated to social work. It dates back to the year 1389, the church and bell tower were constructed later, around the year 1419. Legend has it that the most famous Beguine, Cornelia Adams, expressed interest in being buried in the courtyard of the Church, because he had been desecrated by the Presbyterians.
