This Benedictine monastery was founded in 1025 in Spain and it sits upon a mountain top with spectacular views over the valley.

Similar to Maredsous, it reflects the development of the Benedictine way of life through Europe.

Today it contains the wooden sculpture known as 'The Black Madonna' which is a popular pilgrimage attraction for visitors.
