Monasticon Praemonstratense (I, 72)

Approximate modern location: Very near Churwalden abbey, south of Chur and Malix, following the road toward Engadin valley, in rough mountains, Switzerland.

Elm-Number [See below]: None.*

Other Comments: A parthenon closely associated with Churwalden abbey and founded by it when it ceased duplex status.  In 1838 it was demolished and virtually no trace now remains.
