Walked here from the nearby Fruttanoce Villas - a wonderful walk - and then came upon the cemetery out of nowhere. Beautiful laid out and kept, and a real poignant reminder of that time in our history. If you are in the area, you must...More

We found this cemetery whilst we were visiting the area, it is such a special place. So peaceful and beautiful. The grounds are perfectly kept and you can really take time to reflect whilst you are there.
