STORY OF THE PHOENIX

Almost nine centuries ago, in a small village north of Brussels, a group of Norbertine monks lay the first stone to what eventually became the Grimbergen abbey. But this abbey is not like other abbeys. It has been destroyed by raging fire not only once but three times since 1128.
