About this spot
A historical and architectural gem in the heart of the city. This place is loved by the people of Brussels, who come here to stroll, visit or enjoy a few moments of relaxation, alone or with friends, in the large gardens that border the abbey.

This abbey was founded in 1201 by a noble woman of Brussels named Gisèle, and was entrusted to the nuns of the Cistercian order. The buildings which were badly damaged during the Wars of Religion were rebuilt in the 16th century, and enlarged in the 18th century. Only certain parts of the church still date from the 14th century and belong to that transitional period between Gothic splendour and the flamboyant (Gardens)
