Monasticon Praemonstratense (I, 70)
Approximate modern location: South of Chur and Malix, following the road toward Engadin valley, in rough mountains, Switzerland.
Other Comments: A priory, then abbey (initially duplex). Suppressed and occupied by the Protestants for some time during the 16th century, by 1646 it was again in Catholic hands. It remained a Premonstratensian house until 1807. In 1808 it became the site of a Diocesan Seminary. In 1838 many of the old buildings were demolished. Today it remains the site of a parish office and church. See Monasticon Praemonstratense (above) for detail.
