Long Description:
Constructed by one man, Robert Garcet (1912-2001), between 1951 and 1965, the tower is a fantastical construction built of flint rubble, and with dimensions and symbolism taken from the bible and from ancient civilisations.

The tower is conspicuously topped at its four corners by large stone sculptures of the four cherubim of the Apocalypse: a bull on the north-west turret, man, in the form of a sphinx in the south-west, a lion in the south-east and an eagle at the north-east corner.

Some of the seven floors of the tower are open to the public.The first few levels, the 'museum of flint', explain the history and use of the stone.

From the rooftop you have a magnificent view over the vally of the Geer (french) Jeker (flemish) River.
Height of Look-Out Tower in feet: 108.00
