Gembloux is home to an abbey estate that has played an important role in history and education, past and present. In the past, the abbey was home to Sigebert, a monk of the twelfth century whose World Chronicle detailing the years between 381 and 1111 shines a rare ray of light into the Dark Ages. In the present, Gembloux Agricultural University occupies the premises.

The commune of Gembloux has a population of 20,000. It is located 10 kilometers northwest of the city of Namur. The E42 roadway passes briefly along part of Gemblouxs southern border.

Beuzet, Bossiere, Bothey, Corroy-le-Chateau, Ernage, Grand-Leez, Grand-Manil, Isnes, Lonzee, Mazy, and Sauveniere are boroughs within the municipal district of Gembloux.
