Created in 1812, the old cemetery was extended in 1863. Like any self-respecting Mediterranean cemetery it is planted with cypress trees that are almost as old as it is, and is essentially an open-air museum, as many of the tombs and mausoleums are decorated with superb statues by Jean-Antoine Injalbert, Jean Magrou, Jacques Villeneuve and Louis Paul. You can admire all of the amazing statues during a stroll through the arbours and alcoves.

Émouvant et impressionnant ; penser à photographier le plan du cimetiere pour retrouver les tombes les plus exceptionnelles, même si les inscriptions sur certaines plus traditionnelles méritent notre attention...
