An interesting mix of historic and new graves set in a beautifully landscaped land up the side of a hill along a winding road. Definitely worth a visit. Free to enter, but be aware that you may encounter grieving people.

This is a lovely cemetery with gorgeous views. It is also very big so you can take a long walk. It is sorrowful because of the people I loved who are buried there.
