and present of the town of Bouillon. Constructed to house the
nuns of the order of Holy-Sépulchre, founded by Godfrey
of Bouillon, it bore witness to the town's industrial activity

and history, is located at the very heart of Bouillon, on the
banks of the River Semois, between the Pont de Liège
and the Pont de France just opposite the medieval castle.
