Abbaye de la Fille-Dieu
The convent in Romont, canton Fribourg, is a welcoming haven for guests passing through where they can find comfort in the stillness away from hectic everyday life.
The Abbaye de la Fille-Dieu has been a convent since the 13th century and was originally run by nuns of the Cistercian order, but has now been in the hands of the Trappists since 1906. Anyone can stay the night here, stroll through its beautiful gardens and witness how the Sisters live – and recuperate in this secluded oasis of peace and joy. The Sisters produce altar breads and four types of mustard, all of which you can buy in the convent shop. Good to know: the Camino de Santiago passes right next to the convent.
This is just one of many places of spiritual interest in the canton of Fribourg and part of the Esprit des lieux project – 60 places with spiritual energy in Fribourg Region. The region has a major Christian tradition, a rich religious architectural heritage and beneficial power spots in the midst of nature.
