Photographer's Note

Involved in the movement of swarming monastic orders in the twelfth and twelfth centuries in our region, the Cistercians implantation, around 1215, an abbey of nuns in the valley of the Great Gette to Jauchelette upstream of Jodoigne. It will be called the Ramee (Rameia). This Cistercian presence was to last for five centuries and a half, and mark the area at both spiritually and agriculturally and architecture.

Despite the suppression of the monastic orders in 1796 by the French government, this presence is still felt today through the story buildings preserved. For the most part, they were an agricultural and belong to the eighteenth century, a period of reconstruction of the abbey.
