We visited the cemetery and mausoleum while in Cavtat. The steep walk is well worth the views.The grounds are exceptionally well kept and I found the pictures of the departed on the headstones very moving. Just a very tranquil place to visit.

Worth the climb up the steps, the cemetery is very peaceful and has lovely views. The graves don't make it a macabre place to be, just peaceful.

The Mausoleum and Cemetry is up on the hill but nothing too strenuous. Views from there are breathtaking and the Mausoleum itself is well worth a visit
