TRAVELLING | cemetary gates

When we were in Venice my parents told me they wanted to go to the 'cimitiero' (literally translated:cemetary). It's an Island completely used as a cemetary, and it has got big walls around it. When we arrived i couldn't believe my eyes, i've never seen cemetary's of this kind. Usually cemetary's are a little depressing (still impressing though) and dark, but this one was completely different. Every grave had a picture of the buried person on it (i've never seen that before), and featured colorful flowers. Most of the graves had a little lightbulb that shines forever, so can you believe how beautiful this must be at night? This place really touched me because all i could feel was joy, i can imagine why people would like to be buried here. What's also really special is that there is no other sound then that from the wind trough the trees, the big walls completely isolate the place. If you ever go to Venice i would higly recommend to go see this place.
