The people of Ferrara call this area the countryside inside the.city. A definition.which is.perfect.for a space which is just a few steps.away from the.main historical buildings but at the same.time seems so.distant in terms of atmosphere. I strongly suggest to.visit not.only the cemetery but also the association which operated within the park. Among.other things they are cultivating numerous plants using... More

I stumbled across this on one of the self directed walking tours about town. A beautiful public cemetery set on acres of gardens. I spent some time wandering around. Very nicely laid out. Filled with tombs, memorials and graves. Very beautiful and peaceful. Unfortunately the church was closed so I couldn't go inside.

This is a beautiful, tranquil place with stunning architecture. However, it is a cemetery, a place of respect, were locals come to honour their loved ones, so don't expect ice-cream parlours and people having picnics on the grass.

While I was unable to locate any markers or graves of my ancestors, this is a beautiful and quiet place to spend sometime wandering and gain insight into the history of Ferrara's people.

The peace and beauty of this place (including the gardens and green spaces) is breathtaking. The architecture (by Rosetti) is so well proportioned and harmonious that it lifts the spirit. We went there on bicycles and had the place to ourselves. Only downside was that the church was closed so we couldn't see the art inside

We appreciate the atmosphere and the garden. 15min by walk from the castle. If you are visiting Ferrara, I suggest to recover for half an hour here, then continue to visit this nice city.

The outside of the Certosa is anot as elaborate as the Certosa in Milan. The church as being cleaned so the inside was stripped bare for cleaning. We went to the cemetery because distant family member is buried there. Out side is very pleasant

We ended up here by chance, and what a surprise! This place is totally worth a visit. We were there on a sunday afternoon in july, Ferrara was almost empty and somehow magic.

Probably worth a visit, but personally I felt rather overwhelmed. Many of the Ferrarese lived quite long lives, including one lady of 104. It was a shame that the Certosa itself was not open, due to possible earthquake damage.
