Without imposing lobbies or red carpets. The old world facade of the Oude Houtlei does nothing to reveal the modest monastery behind.  PoortAckere.

Crossing the threshold, we enter inside an intimate monastery whose history goes back to  1278.

What used to be a  monastery  hidden for centuries, today reveals a small part of its secrets. Delightful atmosphere reflecting the simplicity of a neo-gothic building PoortAckere, a monastery with its own history, shines on.
