Abbey Ten Putte

The picturesque Ten Putte abbey is located at the place where Godelieve van Gistel passed away in 1070. The young woman, who came from the area near what is now Boulogne-sur-Mer, was here rejected by her cruel husband and finally murdered. Very quickly tales of miracles started circulating and finally St. Godelieve was canonised in 1084. Around 1100 Ten Putte abbey, a Benedictine convent, was founded here. The Mother of Peace religious community currently occupies the abbey. Although it feels as though time passes more slowly here, yet the clock does not stand still. So the museum has a projection room where you can see an unique film on this centuries-old story. In the abbey you can still find traces of Godelieve everywhere.
