Photographer's Note

Few weeks ago I submitted a post of the St-Jean-Baptiste-au-Béguinage ceiling. You can see it here.
Today I'd like to share it with you with a different view of this beautiful interior.

Church of St-Jean-Baptiste-au-Béguinage (The Michelin guide review): In a peaceful district, this church has a Flemish Baroque façade with three bodies (1676). Inside, the exuberant decoration is placed over a Gothic structure. Above the large arcades, the entablature rests, at the junction of the arches, on the heads of winged angels. You can admire the paintings by Van Loon and different Flemish artists. The neighboring Beguine convent, which used to have up to 1,200 nuns, disappeared in the 19C.
