The ruins of the Cistercian Aulne Abbey can be found in Gozée, near the town of Thuin in Belgium. Come and discover its history and craft brewery.
The abbey is nestled in a steep valley on the right bank of the Sambre, beautifully called "Vallée de la paix" or Valley of peace. The atmosphere is indeed very soothing and calls for a pleasant walk. Education panels, all along the outdoors itinerary, tell you more about the history of the site and the life of its Cistercian monks. The landscaped garden also is a lovely place to relax.
