About the venue

The Augustinian Monastery "Thagaste"

Thagaste is location for the Nuclear Receptor Research Network meeting on Thursday 21 November 2019.

You can find the monastery in the centre of the city, less than 5 minutes’ walk from the Korenmarkt, the Cathedral, the UNESCO-protected Graslei, and the Belfry.

Thagaste is located in a unique monastery where monks still live and work. The beautifully restored inner courtyard at the heart of the monastery is a true oasis of peace.

The monastery is known for its unique and rich heritage. You will discover monumental paintings in the cloisters, and each conference room is decorated with artwork, gathered during the rich and long history of the monastery.
