This is the most amazing cemetery. make sure you get a CD to play as you are going around the cemetery. It is just so helpful and you do learn so much. As locals say, this is where I want to be buried.

This is certainly filled with many statues and monuments. Particularly like "The Turning Angel" It is a little hard to find, but worth the drive. Not sure if anyone gives guided tours, but it would be helpful they did.
