another day in Genova

On Tuesday, we visited the largest cemetery in Genova. The was such a unique and creepy cool place!

According to Giuditta there are millions of people buried here. There were normal rows of plots like you would expect in a traditional American cemetery, but there were also elaborate tombs, crypts and walls of cremated remains.

This entire place was so well designed.  All of the different sections of the cemetery make it feel like a small city within a city.  The architectural styles of all the monuments were so eclectic.  Out of all the things we’ve seen in Genova so far, this is probably my favorite.
