  Blazon and Slogan
by filipdebont
 
 

The abbots House was built in 1725 and is made of Gobertange stones.

It was Abbot J. van der Achten who gave the order to build this beautiful building.

In the triangle fronton you can see a blazon. It is the blazon and the slogan of Abbot J. van der Achten.

This prelate building can not be visited. My guide book tells that it contains beautiful pieces of art, like a beautiful painting made by Antoon Van Dyck, beautiful wall carpets, and beautiful sculptures.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
