This huge cemetery dates from the 19thcentury. Because Milan was extending rapidly, there had to come also cemeteries. One for the ordinary people, “the Cimitero Maggiore” en one for the rich people in Milan, “the Cimitero Monumentale”.
You will find here very special funerary monuments in various architectural styles. It is the only cemetery which may call themselves a national museum. When entering you will find directly at the left side a map with the most famous tombs. Entrance is free!
