Hofje Armen de Poth

Return in time in this monumental courtyard. Around the 15th century, Arme Huyssittende was given shelter here and plaguers were cared for.

From 1350 onwards, The Brotherhood of the Holy Spirit provided the Medieval sick. They also distributed meals to poor people. These gifts were popularly called 'the Poth'. From this the brothers took their nickname: Pothbrothers'. After having been active in various places, the brothers finally ended up on the spot of the present court. Over time, the terrain has expanded more and more. Currently make 48 cottages and the St. Rochus chapel is part of De Poth. The courtyards are freely accessible. For the key to the chapel, you can ring the bell at the house of the Inner Father. Enjoy the peace and quiet in the courtyard and look around.
