Numerous renowned painters, sculptors and writers went to their final resting place on this 19 metre-high burial mound. However, they had to share it with the traditional Catholic bourgeoisie of Ghent who paid a lot of money to have splendidly sculpted tombs and family vaults installed there. This is a place of rest in more than one sense.
