- A Cistercian nuns' monastery located on Tautra Island in Central Norway -


Welcome to Tautra Mariakloster. We are a community of fourteen nuns who live the Cistercian (Trappistine) life in central Norway. We are located on the Island of Tautra in the Trondheim Fjord.  If you speak Norwegian, we have a new site: www.tautra.no.

This present site is for English speakers.  The menu above will help you to navigate.  Thank you for your interest.  God bless your day!

see the last page (contact/INFO) for an important announcement about the july trondheim nidarosdomen market. 

We are in the process of creating a entirely new website.  Meanwhile, we will try to update this site a bit to bring it more up to date.  Information on the new wing can now be found on the page called Monastery Today in the section entitled: Monastery Development.
