Back to The Abbey of Villers-la-Ville

One of the first things I did when I was released from the hospital at the end of March was to photograph again. Almost 5 weeks without photography was unbearable… I wanted to go to a place Lars and I had visited so I could practice again. And a really photogenic place, not far from Brussels is the Abbey of Villers-la-Ville.

The visitor centre had moved to the other side of the street, thus allowing for a beautiful overview of the whole abbey.

The remains of the abbey church are magnificent! What a grandeur!

Anyway, the Abbey was founded in 1146 but became abandoned some 600 years later.

Apart from the church, you can see the remains of the workshops, dormitory, cloister, kitchen, refectory and so on.

I had to have one last look at the church. Then Lars and I saw the guest house and were off.

If you want to have a look at the pictures – and more information – we took in the past, have a look here.

    We just returned from there, and it’s cool to recall this place seeing your photographs.

    So strange that it was just abandoned! Makes for very cool ruins though! — YUR
