This cemetery is located in Assebroek and is filled with unique gothic mausoleums and the crumbling stone tombs of eminent locals like poet Guido Gezelle and sculptor Henri Pickery.
The atmosphere is melancholic, but peaceful at the same time. The cemetery is home to the tomb of Antoine Michel Wemaer, known to the grave diggers as Pirate Piet.
