KZN – Richeneau Trappist Mission – Underberg

On the outskirts to the east of Underberg is the Trappist Mission of Richeneau, set up by Abbott Francis Pfanner in the late 1800’s.

This Mission has a restored watermill, extensive outbuildings and a school. The Mission is an extension of the “mother” mission at Marrianhill, and forms part of about 22 similar missions established by the Trappists, who came from Austria.
