Cimiter Certosa, Bologna

 These days i'm working on a book and due to my research i've realised that i've never made a post about the Certosa in Bologna. I was there shortly before Christmas 2015 so it's a slight gap between visiting it and posting about it...

I definetly recommend to visit that gem if you ever get the chance. Bologna itself is a wonderful city and the cemetery is one of my faves. Look for yourself:

Le Cimitere du Monastère de Ciemetz, Nice

This is the second cemetery we visited in Nice. It's life began as a monastery and that is more or less the only information i was able to dig out. 

It's located on a hill overviewing Nice and the view is absolutely stunning. Supposedly Henri Matisse is buried here but we didn't bother to look out for his grave since we are not looking for celebs but for interesting sculptures and graves. 


So here they are:

Cimitiere du Chateau, Nice, France

Bon Jour and welcome again! This is the first Post about a cemetery in France. To be precise it is the Cimitiere du Chateau in Nice and it is located on a hill overlooking the city. You'll probably notice that when we get to the pictures. The cemetery itself is rather small but it is truly a gem. You can tell that Nice is near Italy because the place does remind me of some Cemeteries i've visited in Italy over the years.

The biggest disadvantage however was that this cemetery has no toilets. Otherwise it was well worth the visit.




They removed the Wings! I've never seen that before













This is kinda scary. look at the claws!
