Following the destruction of their abbey in Drongen in the 16th century, the Norbertines converted this chapel in late-Gothic style – which had up to that point served as a shelter – into a temporary abbey, where they stayed until the late 17th century. Under the French regime, the chapel became a warehouse.

Today the chapel is only opened for temporary exhibitions or events. The glass windows were designed by the artist Wim Delvoye.
