Mariënlof Abbey, also known as Colen Abbey, was originally a monastery of Crusaders, but in the last two centuries it functioned as a Cistercian convent. Since 1990, it has been allowed to bear the title of abbey. The interior of the church and sacristy date mainly from the second half of the 18th century. Among other things, there are works by the Liege painter Martin Aubé (1729-1806) and in the sacristy there is one of the very oldest paintings on panel in Belgium: the Odilia Shrine from 1292.
