“A quiet place of great beauty”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

This is the cemetery - a section of a general cemetery, actually - for people who died on Capri and were not Catholics. Most were Protestants from countries like Germany and Britain. A few were quite well-known in their day. I went to see the grave of Norman Douglas, who wrote "Old Calabria". Others leave flowers on the grave of Gracie Fields.

The peace and beauty are especially welcome after the crush and heat of Capri town. So is the cool air under the trees.

To get there on foot, leave Capri town in the Anacapri direction. After two or three hundred yards there's a fork in the road. Take the road on the right (which eventually goes down to the Marina Grande) and after about 150 yards you'll come to the cemetery gate. The non-Catholic part is on the lower terrace, looking out over the sea.

I don't remember being asked to pay (but that was in winter and things may be different in summer) and I couldn't find a plan of the cemetery. The grave I was looking for was very easy to find though - the non-Catholic section isn't very big.

There are a few shallow steps, but only a few.
