At rest beneath the trees

16/09/2017 - 17/09/2017

Brussels Cemetery in Evere, the largest in the city, is a vast park of 38 hectares designed by landscape architect Louis Fuchs. As well as its winding paths and wooded stands of trees, it is also home to an extraordinary array of trees: oak, beech, cypress, horse chestnut, plane trees and weeping willows. A multitude of well-known (mayors of Brussels, sculptors, architects, scientists) and anonymous (victims of the Battle of Waterloo or everyday residents of the municipality) figures have their final resting place in the cemetery.
It also has space devoted to numerous public commemorative monuments reflecting the architectural styles in vogue at the time of their construction. A green space that’s worth exploring…
