The cemetery in Laeken is one of the 4 cemeteries of the City of Brussels, with those of Brussels (Evere), Neder-Over-Heembeek and Haren. That of Laeken is a protected heritage site dating back to the Middle Ages and is one of the major old catholic cemeteries in Belgium. Its past is so rich in history, art and memory that it is often called the "Père Lachaise of Brussels". It is the oldest cemetery of the region still in activity and the parochial last one: it is indeed implanted around a church, that of Notre-Dame de Laeken. It owes much of its original popularity and its architectural and funerary value to the burial of the first Belgian sovereigns.

Desecrated chapel.
