Get a taste of Belgian nobility on a tour of important castles during your scenic ride through the Flemish countryside.

The foundation of the Abbey took place in the early Middle Ages and was, like many, sold and demoished during the French Revolution. Only the Church remained but after a fire, the whole church was destroyed except for the 16th century tower which is still standing after a restoration and fully integrated into the rebuilt church. A decade later, in 1898 Dom Gérard of Caloen started the foundation of the current abbey. The new abbey would send monks to Brazil to revive the Benedicitine way of life over there. Today, about 25 monks are still living here according to the the Benedictine way of life in the service of God and the Church.
