“Cimitero della Certosa”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

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.

“Lovely peaceful place to walk around”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

This was a lovely, quiet place to visit and walk around, listen to the birds and see places were whole generations of Italians are buried and remembered. Wide open spaces, many cloisters, some still closed when we visited.

“Fascinating”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Saw this from the air from a hotair balloon ride and had to go see what it looked like from the ground. Whole family historys here and, although the cloisters were closed due to recent earthquake activity, it was so interesting and not a bit macabre looking at the way the Italians revere their forebears.

“Most closed off due to damage by earth tremor”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

It looks great but the cloisters are closed off after the earthquake so you have plenty to see but not as much access to a chronological timeline as I would have liked.
