Villers-le-Temple

Condroz

Villers, a small village in the Condroz region traces its origins to the Neolithic, and its first development in the Roman era. Indeed, the village was located near the Roman road between Tongeren and Arlon. Thereafter, no documents are found mentioning the village of Villers until 1124, when a deed of land to an abbey contains the names of Albertus de Villers and his brother Theodoricus.

But in the second half of the 13th century, according to the cartulary of the Abbey Flône of November 16, 1260, the brothers of the Abbey ceded land located on the villages of Villers and Clémodeau to a certain Gerard de Villers, brother of the Temple (Templar).
