The Cemetery of Atina

The cemetery of Atina was built in 1840 on the remains of the old Roman town. The entrance to the cemetery is to one side of the ruined Collegiate Church of Santa Maria and Chapel of San Marco.  The cemetery contains some private chapels including those of the Visocchi,  Sabatini and Mancini families.

Within the cemetery there are some really beautiful gravestones and statues.

At the lower end of the cemetery is the Church of San Pietro which was built on the site of the Temple of Jupiter, and a view of the district of Il Colle and its Church of Santa Croce.
