  • Certainly worth visiting but beware of the fact that it closes at 1700. We arrived later and could therefore only enter through an unlocked gate to a smaller part of the cemetery. It is a clean and...

  • The first Jewish cemetery in the city dates back to 1446, on land in the district of Santa Caterina. Over time this cemetery became bigger and bigger, even invading part of the hill of San Giusto. For health reasons, Emperor Joseph II ordered cemeteries to be built outside the cities and therefore the Jewish community decided to start burying their dead in the current location of the cemetery (via della Pace): we are in 1843. It is very decadent, with tombstones invaded by brambles, leaves and vines, with avenues literally carpeted with moss. It is a marvel. The morning time is up to 12; you will find it closed, but just give the intercom and the gate will open. It is nowhere written that taking photographs is prohibited. I recommend it to visit, always with total respect for the dead.
  • A really impressive place. Everything is very overgrown and has its own charm. Definitely worth a visit! But be careful: it is teeming with mosquitos. The visit unfortunately ended with stabbed legs and arms. Without mosquito repellent, I wouldn't visit the place again.
