You can easily get to here by turning left as you come down from the funicular from the fortress. Fans of SoM will easily notice what is used in the movie. The history in this area is wonderful to explore.

After reading all the positive reviews we decided to have a look at this cemetery. I didn't found it very quiet, as most people wrote, due to the many tourists, but I think it's worth the visit if you are around the area anyways. One...More
