Discover the most beautiful spots along the Lys
In Sint-Martens-Latem, the Lys takes, in all her grace, a step towards art loving. Those qualities exist thanks to the presence of the beautiful meanders of the Lys and the adherent river country. Latem, and of course its borough Deurle, seem to be taken straight from a postcard. In the beginning of the 20th century, a colony of artists settled here. The group from Latem brought forth lots of symbolic, impressionistic and expressionistic masterpieces, and frequently Latem and Deurle itself were the source of inspiration. This also proves that art is an important theme, thanks to the many museums, artists residences and galleries.
