So much history in this tiny town and cemetery. The old church is wonderful and you can still go in it. You can get a free pamphlet at the tent where they sell souvineers to show you where all of the famous graves and mausoleums...More

The pictures we took here looked like a postcard, all that autumn is supposed to be, with the changing colors of the trees in the hills and the brook. The mausoleums were a little creepy but so interesting to look at, very peaceful place.

Great place to visit, but really need the tour to make the most of the visit. Without that, we would not have known what we were looking at or where to go.
