Monumental Cemetery, Milan

4.7
Admire artistic tombs at Monumental Cemetery, a large cemetery opened in 1866. Several of the tombs were designed by renowned artists. Enter through the large, Neo-medieval-style Famedio that contains the tombs of some of Italy's most honored citizens. Look for the exhibit of prints, photographs, and maps outlining the cemetery's historical development. Next, wander through the cemetery to discover both contemporary and classical Italian sculptures, as well as Greek temples, elaborate obelisks, and more. Visit the Civico Mauoleo Palanti to see the memorial built for 800 Milanese killed in Nazi concentration camps.

  • Hard to think of qs place only as custody of the dead. Here famous lives intertwine, artwork, routes in history. The city of Milan has one of the nicest nostalgically.

  • With full respect to the souls reset at this place, it is really does not look like a cemetery. You feel that you are walking in a museum full of art and prefect touch. Some of the monuments reflect sad story while others are showing the joy beyond our life. It is amazing how the artists translated the life of several people resting in the cemetery. Highly recommended.
  • I have never seen a cemetery like this one. Even from the outside will definitely catch your attention as the synagogues are monumental and unique in the scenery. Once you enter you will be circled by different types of tombs and statues which will enhance you and you may almost forget that you actually are in the cemetery.
  • Amazing place. Very beautiful cemetery, I’ve never seen anything like this before. The atmosphere is fantastic here.
  • Beautiful place, many sculptures, huge place. You can really rest there ( even if you are alive). There are toilets avaliable.
  • I highly recommend taking a walk in this cemetery. Grand and elaborate tombstones in a peaceful atmosphere.
