After Ludwina Van Imschoot (translated by us): 'This is the graveyard 'Campo Santo' where several more and less famous artists and deserving persons were burried, to name a few : Jan Frans Willems, Filip De Pillecijn, Rosalie Loveling,(literaries) Jozef Guislain (doctor),Hélène De Reuse and Camille D'Havé (painters), and then a series of composers, architects, sculptors, benefactors, poets, even a Nobel laureate, buried on this beautiful located graveyard under expensive gravestones of which 131 are protected.
