The Aulne monastery (Abbaye d'Aulne) was once a Benedictine and then a Cistercian monastery - and now it is mostly in ruins. It was founded already in 637 and came under Cistercian rule in 1147. The monastery had many ups and downs, with its last golden era in the 18th century. But the monastery was sacked by French revolutionaries in 1794 and turned to ruins.

One of the saddest monument of the First World War Western Front and the largest Commonwealth War Cemetery in the world - with 11 954 burials (8 367 unidentified) and the Tyne Cot memorial to the missing - naming all those without a known grave who died at the Ypres Salient after August 15 1917 (those lost before that are commemorated at the Menin Gate in Ypres, but there were so many names that there were not room for them all). This cemetery was on a strategic important point in the war and saw its first burials (343 of them) already in 1917 and the great cross (as can be found in most Commonwealth cemeteries) is placed on a German pill box. The cemetery was designed by Sir Herbert Baker and is located close to Passendale (or Passchendaele) in Belgium.

The collegiate church of St Ursmer, in the small Belgian town of Binche. The current structure dates to the 15th and 17th century - it was formerly the church of Notre Dame, but renamed in 1409 when the relics of St Ursmer were brought here and the church was made into a collegiate church, which it still remains to this day.
