Citeaux Trappist Mission – 1896

Citeaux Mission overlooks the mighty Umkomaas River between Impendle and Underberg. Very little remains of this mission other than a stone barn, residence, and remains of the Grotto.

The inhabitants of the site were very wary of me photographing, until I explained that I simply wanted to photograph. I was asked whether I was doing an environmental check??? More images are available under GALLERY – CHURCHES & MISSIONS – CITEAUX
