History

Bonnevoie-Sud: the centre of the Bonnevoie neighbourhood has always been located in Bonnevoie-Sud. It was transformed in the 1990s as part of an urban planning project.

Bonnevoie traces its origins back to a monastery of Cistercian nuns founded in the 12th century and dissolved towards the end of the 18th century. The neighbourhood underwent rapid development after it was connected to the national railway network and the first train station opened in 1859. In 1888, its first parish church was consecrated, though it was later destroyed by bombings during World War II. Some years after the war, construction of the current Mary Queen of Peace Church began. Opposite the church is a primary school, which was constructed between 1902 and 1905.
