Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Serene Oasis', taken at the Begijnhof (Beguine Court), Amsterdam.

This too is from the same Court, to the side of No. 34 - the oldest house in Amsterdam, dating from 1528, and one of only two remaining wooden-fronted houses in the city centre. The rest were destroyed by a series of fires, which led to the passing of a law against all-timber buildings. On the left of the building are a set of biblical plaques, with scripture quotes and illustrations.

Best wishes,
