Located near the subway station, is a place that impresses with every single grave you see. Free entrance, take more than 30 minutes for a walk to discover statues and alleys around.

This was the most interesting cemetery I have visited. The sculptures are beautiful, so real that some of them are disturbing even. A great visit if you are in Milan.
