History of Mariannhill
Mariannhill (“Mary-Ann-Hill”) was founded in 1882 by Francis Pfanner, a Trappist from Europe, who came to South Africa to bring the Good News to the people.

Tre Fontane (Three Fountains) is named after the Trappist Monastery in Rome, where Francis Pfanner (right) stayed for some time.

The Mariannhill Sisters follow the example of Abbot Francis Pfanner to care for the well-being and spiritual needs of all who seek rest and peace at Tre Fontane.
