Nice little explore this one. We arrived at the cemetery after it had closed. This afforded us easy access after a bit of a climb. No tourists around to disturb entry to the crypt and no-one peering in to see ‘what’s in there’?

My partner in crime had been here before so we knew where to go and how to enter which was a bonus. The crypt is massive, made up of three long corridors with intersecting corridors. By no means a maze, but big enough not to be able to see the other end well. There must be hundreds of people laid to rest here – numbers above the tombs noted over 2500. dusty plastic wreaths are dotted around attached to certain memorials giving a more eerie feeling to the place. Its actually pretty stark. Not coming from the same country it lacks a little excitement of knowing who is behind the stones, none the less it was a good way to spend a couple of hours on a sunny afternoon.
