    The Abbey of Herkenrode, just outside the city walls, was an unseen center of power for centuries. The Cistercians had an unprecedented spiritual and worldly power from 1317, because of the pilgrimage of the Bleeding Host. The respectful refuge house within the city walls was a shelter for isolation and reflection.The exhibition CELIBATAIR DIVAS focusses on the unusual life of these emancipated women through an extraordinary selection of international and contemporary artworks. Step into a unique historical location, which is exceptionally accessible and discover a fascinating scenography.
