The Holy Corner is the English name for the Oud begijnhof or Old Saint Elisabeth beguinage in Ghent, Belgium. It is one of three beguinages in the city - the other two are the new Saint Elisabeth beguinage in the suburb of Sint-Amandsberg and Our Lady Ter Hooyen in the Lange Violettenstraat. Both Saint Elisabeth beguinages were named after Elisabeth of Hungary, also known as Saint Elisabeth of Thuringia.
Holy Corner is a protected urban heritage site. It is now a largely urban neighbourhood in the northeast of Ghent, close to the Rabot , between the Burgstraat and the Begijnhoflaan.
