The origins of the abbey of "La Ramée" remain obscure, we do not know the exact date of foundation. Like abbey, La Ramee was independent but was under

the spiritual tutelage of the great abbey of Villers. It counted no less than six blissful mainly from the bourgeoisie of Brabant or Liege.
The nuns or "ladies" were living around the monastery for celebrate the offices and for do some little jobs. A scriptorium famous for calligraphy and illumination
is documented in La Ramee from the thirteenth century. The community led by an abbess, also included "converse" sisters employed to physical tasks.
In the eighteenth century, under Austrian domination, the abbesses have developed a teaching activity. The abbey was declared a national asset in 1796.
The school was removed and the Cistercian evicted. The domain, divided into several lots, was sold in 1799. Since 1903, a part of the area is owned at Ladies of the
Congregation of the Sacred Heart. The farm was acquired in 1990 by the real estate society "La Ramée" who wish implanted a vast restoration project and cultural center.

Belgium is a country in northwest Europe. Founding member of the European Union, it covers an area of 30,528 square kilometres and has a population of about 10.7 million. From the end of the Middle Ages until the 17th century, it was a prosperous centre of commerce and culture. Upon its independence, Belgium eagerly participated in the Industrial Revolution and, at the end of the nineteenth century, possessed several colonies in Africa. Today, Belgium's strongly globalized economy and its transportation infrastructure are integrated with the rest of Europe. Its location at the heart of a highly industrialized region helps made it 2007 the world's 15th largest trading nation. Cultural life is nowadays concentrated within each language community and a variety of barriers have made a shared cultural sphere less pronounced. Anyway, the region corresponding to today's Belgium has seen the flourishing of major artistic movements that have had tremendous influence on European art and culture. Text extracted from wikipedia.
