Exploring the Ruins of the Villers Abbey, Belgium

Chances are you’ve never heard of the small town called Villers-la-Ville in the Walloon Brabant province of Wallonia, Belgium. It’s located about 40km South of Brussels and home to the magnificent ruins of the Villers abbey. This abbey used to be one of the most significant Cistercian abbeys in Europe and it’s definitely worth a visit if you like exploring ruins, have an interest in history or if you want to escape the city.
