The Prettiest Little Cemetery in Italy

The Prettiest Little Cemetery in Italy

Sometimes taking a wrong turn takes you to the right place. While I was exploring Portovenere during my recent trip to Cinque Terre, I stumbled upon the a most serene and beautiful cemetery. The site sits on the hilltop by the base of the city’s castle facing out across the water.I never know quite what the right approach is to take in places of local religious significance and mean no disrespect by sharing photographs – for me this was a place of utter calmness, a place to go to reflect on the beauty of the surroundings and escape from the crowds of Liguria.
