The Bridgettines in Maribo
History, culture and exciting past
Experience the history of the Maribo Monastery and meet the nuns and monks of the Bridgettine Order, who founded the city of Maribo. At Klostersøen are the atmospheric ruins of the monastery that Queen Margrethe the First allowed the Order of Bridgettine to build on Lolland by the Maribosøerne. The Bridgettine Monastery was completed in 1416.
The monastery was built of stone from the castle Grimstrup, whose ruins are still located by Nørresø north of Maribo.
Maribo grew up around the Birgittiner monastery and the large monastery church, which is now a cathedral for the Diocese of Lolland-Falster. After the Reformation, it was transformed into a convent for noble virgins. Christian the Fourth's daughter Leonora Christina Ulfeldt lived in the convent from 1685 - 1698.
