Welcome to Prieuré de Conques
A Taste of the Past &
Welcome to the ‘Prieuré de Conques’, it was back in 648 that Saint Remacle, the bishop of Maastricht, ordered the building of a monastery in Conques on the land of the Count of Chiny. In 1173, the Priory was given as a gift to the Cistercian monks of Orval, who transformed it into a place of study and convalescence.
There is no denying that still today, in the shade of the four hundred year old lime tree of the Priory and cradled by the ripples of the meandering river the Semois, the outside world seems to have come to a halt…
The whole team at the Prieuré wishes you a pleasant visit to our website and look forward to introducing you to the charms of this divine location.
