The cemetery of Mercatale in Tuscany

One afternoon my friend and I walked up to the cemetery of our village Mercatale.  A thunderstorm was on its’s way and we felt like this is the right time to pay a visit to such a place. Mercatale is a really tiny village …..not even to find on Google….. a quiet serene place where locals find their last rest presents an authentic cemetery. We were both struck by it’s peace and simplicity , by walking around we nearly studied each grave stone about every persons life span, photograph and titles.




....this must be one of the oldest names.....

….this must be one of the oldest graves…no names…..







Somehow since I was a child I felt a certain attraction to spend time at cemeteries; and many years ago I spend a whole week in Paris photographing at cemeteries…..

 I guess it is the stillness of time and peace….. A place were time becomes timeless……!

    Cemeteries are very interesting places to visit. These are very elaborately decorated with lots of fresh flowers. I think here in the US that it is done less and less. It use to be more traditional. Thanks again for sharing!

    • Judi, most of the flowers are silk flowers, because of the summer heat I guess, but they do look like real flowers. In the US. yes you might be right, but when I visit my brother and mother in laws grave site to my surprise I see a lot of fresh flowers, maybe because they are Persian peoples grave and their tradition for cemeteries is different. thanks for stopping by
