Exceptional listed Walloon heritage, the Villers-la-Ville Cistercian Abbey is remarkably preserved since the 12th century!
Explore its reception-shop area with a wide choice of local products, its interpretive centre and its tour itinerary. Get a panoramic 180° view of all the Abbey. And immerse yourself in the past with the Ardoise, the interactive augmented reality tablet! At each of the 20 stations on your itinerary you can access a variety of scripted multimedia content. Augmented reality breathes life back into the architectural features and to people now dead.
The Abbey has 5 gardens of very different styles. The Jarden des Simples of Medieval inspiration and the Jardin des Moines have medicinal plants from yesteryear and today. The Jardin de la Pharmacie and the Jardin de l’Abbé are two ornamental gardens. The fifth Abbey Garden touches the senses and the olfactory one in particular.
Also visit the micro-brewery and the vineyard.
With the family of friends, explore Villers-la-Ville Abbey, its architecture, its history, its gardens and its animals!
