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 church of Santa Maria and San Marco.  The cemetery contains some private chapels including those of the Visocchi,  Sabatini and Mancini families.
