Urbex: Sanatorium du Basil


sanatorium Du Basil is one of most most beautiful Urban site's in the belgium Ardennes.


a little history found on the internet.


The initiative to build this sanatorium came in 1899 from the director of the Bacteriological Laboratory, Ernest Malvoz.

the Construction began around 1900 and in 1903 the first patients were received.

The location on a hill in the middle of a forest was not chosen randomly.

Due to the clean air and soothing environment it provides a favourable climate for tuberculosis patients to recover.

the south-facing building has been designed in such a way that, that due to its curved shape, it can take full advantage of the sunlight.

This have a positive effect on the treatment.

The characteristic main building is set up in the east, 

and a tower with clock in the centre.

In the west was the medical ward. with on the ground floor a pool for rehabilitation. 

On the first floor at the back was the canteen and kitchen.

The laundry and boiler room were located on the ground floor with a beautifully masonry brick chimney.

After the period, as the convalescent home for tuberculosis patients,

the building served as a psychiatric institution and as an asylum seekers' centre.

As a result, the building was closed due to the enormous service costs.


my last visit here was in the summer of 2019.

and the site is badly damaged.

in just a year its almost teared down.

every piece of metal is stolen,

all glasses are broken.

the tower is even set on fire.

and the only question i have is : Why?


i give it a few year before its gone.
