"Dilbeek" is a municipality in the province of , in Flanders, one of the three regions of Belgium. The municipality comprises the villages of Dilbeek proper, Groot-Bijgaarden, Itterbeek, Schepdaal, Sint-Martens-Bodegem, and Sint-Ulriks-Kapelle. Dilbeek is located just outside the Brussels-Capital Region, in the Payottenland, hence the local name "Poort van het Pajottenland" (Gate to the Payottenland). Even though Dilbeek is located in the Dutch language area of Belgium, there is a French speaking minority represented by 4 members (5 in 2000) on the 33-seat local council (Municipal elections results, 2006 and 2000). It is a mostly residential community with largely preserved rural areas and some industrial zones.

istor
edieval origin
The life of Saint Alena, the 7th century martyr daughter of a lord of Dilbeek, was set in Dilbeek and Forest (Vorst). The historical facts of her life, however, are disputed.The legend of Saint Alena, in Dutch In Carolingian times, Dilbeek and its neighbouring villages were part of the pagus "Bracbatensis". This territory, ruled by the Lords of Aa in Anderlecht, was integrated into the Landgraviate of Brabant by the counts of Leuven around 1085. The first mention of the name "Dedelbeccha" dates from 1075, while the name "Bigardis", later transformed into "Groot-Bijgaarden" (in French "Grand Bigard"), dates from 1110. "Bigardis" was originally a dependency of the Abbey of Saint Bavo in Ghent, but by 1125, nuns under the leadership of Saint Wivina had founded a religious community there. Around 1183, the landgraviate became the Duchy of Brabant, within which Dilbeek remained as an independent parish until the French Revolution.

6th century until no
The area’s parishes belonged to the see of Cambrai until 1559, when they were placed under the administration of the Archbishop of Mechelen. Also in the 16th century, Dilbeek, Itterbeek and Sint-Martens-Bodegem were placed under the local rule of the Lords of Gaasbeek. The following decades were marked by the wars that opposed Catholics and Protestants, which resulted in the ruin of the Abbey of Groot-Bijgaarden. The final dismantlement and sale of the buildings took place during the French regime in the 1790s.

*The imposing castle of Groot-Bijgaarden was built in 1640 around a 14th-century keep. Nearby is the Sint-Wivina domain, where ruins of the original abbey still stand.
*Dilbeek"s local authority offices, also known as the de Viron castle, was built in 1863 in Tudor-style on the ruins of a 14th-century fortification. One of the medieval towers, the "Sint-Alenatoren", can still be seen in the park surrounding the current building. On his visit to this fort, Charles V was reportedly served rabbit instead of his favourite hare, which resulted in the nickname "konijnenfretters" (rabbit eaters) for the inhabitants of Dilbeek. Several other buildings of interest (farm, ice cellar, stagecoach building) can also be found in the park
*The rural communes contain numerous old farms, including "Het Neerhof", a 13th-century building that belonged to the abbey of Forest.
*The tower of the "Sint-Ambrosiuskerk" (church of Saint-Ambrose) dates from the same century.
*The main church of Sint-Anna-Pede (Itterbeek) was the model used by Peter Brueghel the Elder in his 1568 painting "The Parable of the Blind" currently in Naples. The village now houses a Brueghel museum as well as a restored watermill dating from 1776.
*Dilbeek also houses an interesting tram museum, tracing the history of this local mode of transportation since its beginning in 1887.
*The village of Sint-Gertrudis-Pede (Schepdaal) is the location of the Payottenland"s only working watermill, a centuries old building that has been thoroughly renovated in the eighties and nineties.
