My 13 yr old son actually asked to visit this spot when we read about it in a hotel guidebook. It is beautiful and peaceful and the "road" through the cemetery was quite an adventure in itself! We took lots of photos, and he enjoyed seeing the "ancient" tombstones. Wear comfortable walking shoes.

I never thought I would enjoy walking through a cemetery but I loved this. It was interesting seeing how long people had been laid to rest there. They also have many statues to honor certain people that had done great things. We also looked at the soldiers markers. If you have the chance take a stroll through it.
