“The cemetery is an open space among the ruins, covered in winter with violets and daisies. It might make one in love with death, to think that one should be buried in so sweet a place.”
― Percy Bysshe Shelley
Inside the gates one finds beautiful examples of Cemetery art-including marble and bronze statues, obelisks and elaborately carved headstones. Family mausoleums are made of both imported and local stone with iron gates and doors, marble shutters and stained glass windows.
