  • The Augustinian monastery with its Sint-Stefanuskerk is located not far from Gravensteen Castle. The monastery was founded in 1296, and the Augustinian monks could the first 250 years of living more or less peacefully until ikonoklasmen in 1566, when the monastery was stormed and destroyed. Also during the French revolution it went wrong. But every time they managed for the monks to come back and get their monastery rebuilt. The monks here, but still a part of the monastery building is used as a college and some rooms are rented out for conferences and meetings. As a tourist you can not visit the monastery but the Church. The current church was consecrated in 1841 and its Tower was completed in 1849. Remarkable is the beautiful pulpit in carved oak and Gaspar de Crayer of images.
