Hi guys this is my entry for @instagram's weekend project #whpdoortodoor.
This is the Begijnhof in Amsterdam. 
The Begijnhof in Amsterdam is the only almshouse founded in medieval Amsterdam, located within the Singel. The courtyard is almost a meter lower than the rest of the city at  the medieval street level. It is unclear when the Begijnhof was founded. The Beguines have been living there since 1346 (A document from that year makes reference to "beghynhuys"). In 1389,  Originally, the Begijnhof was  completely surrounded by water (the Damrak, the Spui, and Begijnensloot) and had only one accessible gate at the Begijnensteeg (the one you see in the picture) . So the rear facades were in the water. The entrance to the Spui has only existed since the 19th century.
