Cellino San Marco. Monumental Cemetery

Cellino San Marco. Monumental Cemetery

The cemetery of Cellino San Marco dates back to the early twentieth century and its style recalls that of the elementary schools.

Until the early nineteenth century the dead were buried inside the churches and only with an edict of Napoleon, this system was abolished and places had to be found outside the town for burial.

In Cellino an area was identified near the church of San Marco which thus also became the chapel of the cemetery.

The monumental entrance is symmetrical characterized by two large cubic elements placed on the sides of the entrance gate.

They are two buildings of a room that have an entrance door and two windows with friezes.

As soon as you enter the cemetery area you immediately notice the first noble chapels dating back to the early twentieth century with a very elegant architectural style.
