Finally, the location for the "Last signs of autumn" is set: let's stay away from the city centre and visit the impressive rouins of the Abbaye de Villers

The Abbey

The Abbaye de Villers (Villers Abbey), situated in the commune of Villers-la-Ville (Belgium).

Majestic ruins give a marvellous idea of the life of monks of the Cistercian Order and a lot of nice photo opportunities.

It was founded in the 12th Century, under the aegis of Saint Bernard. Today, its majestic ruins give a marvellous idea of the life of monks of the Cistercian Order.

What you can find here: over 850 years of history and lots of greet photo opportunities.
