One of the last places you expect signs of the Halloween craze is in a quiet, religiously inspired setting… And yet, in the beautifully preserved 16th century beguinage of Diest, that’s where I found some during a recent Saturday afternoon photowalk.
Today, the once secluded community is recognized as an UNESCO World Heritage site. It houses a museum, a cultural center, a lace-making school and an art gallery. The current residents are mostly senior citizens. Still a great place for great pictures!
