 Maredsous Abbey
(1872-    )

The Abbey Maredsous is a Benedictine monastery founded in the nineteenth century in the Anhée commune in the Belgian province of Namur. It was founded on November 15, 1872 by the abbey Beuron with financial support from the Desclée family, who paid for the plans and the construction of buildings that were designed by the architect Jean-Baptiste de Béthune (1831-1894 ). The abbey today is well known for its production of Maredsous beers and Maredsous cheeses. The mineral collection (source of the labels shown here) was probably associated with the ceramic workshop or the secondary school in St. Benedict's College.
