Cimitero monumentale della Certosa, Bologna

4.5
The Certosa di Bologna is a former Carthusian monastery (or charterhouse) in Bologna, northern Italy, which was founded in 1334 and suppressed in 1797. In 1801 it became the city’s Monumental Cemetery which would be much praised by Byron and others. In 1869 an Etruscan necropolis, which had been in use from the sixth to the third centuries BCE, was discovered here.The Certosa is located just outside the walls of the city, near the Stadio Renato Dall'Ara, at the foot of the Monte della Guardia and the Sanctuary of the Madonna di San Luca.

  • A magnificent place, decaying, magical, full of zones, rooms, tunnels, surprises ... mysterious ... bright and bleak at the same time. A place of the dead, where the living walking in an incredible atmosphere. Not to be missed!

  • I did various guided tours at night and I was amazed by the history and beauty in this place ... There are some statues and monuments that will literally leave you speechless ... There I found art, culture, history, beauty.

  • Cemeteries maybe look alike, but the monumental part of our Certosa has a charm. You feel enveloped in an atmosphere of other, you realize you really who lived before you left a mark, a memory, a teaching, a hope. It is essential to devote a visit at a farewell ceremony, but just like in any other monument in the city. I recommend a guided tour. At the entrance, on the right, the cloisters of other denominations are poignant and beautiful. It may happen that someone approaches, and with a bit of hesitancy and awkwardness ask: "excuse me, do you know where the tomb of Lucio Dalla?". A great resting where it should be.

  • Beautiful sad and evocative ... .... An old place since time immemorial is the cemetery of this city, already the villanovians, then the Etruscans, Romans and finally we, traces of the past overlap here, one over the other.
