In coming to the cemetary of the Fontanelle, I didn't know what to expect. However, once you enter, it's really apparent what you are in for. Your mind quickly fills with thoughts about every one of these souls, their lives, who they were, how did they get here...when it changes to the people who have since cared for them. Do your research before you go, so you have the story in mind. You can get the tour if you like as well. The story is exceptionally deep, sad and inspiring all at once. We took a taxi there, which I highly recommend as the path there is very hilly. You may also want to take a taxi back, but I chose to walk. This is a must see for anyone who can handle it. If you are sensitive, I would avoid it as it does take your emotions for a tour. Also, if you feel inspired, you can bring a coin, a rosary or a candle to place on one of the skulls or bones. I give it a 4 because it would have been nice to have a detailed pamphlet about the place as you enter. There are signs detailing most of the story as you walk around, but there is so much to this history that I feel would be better expressed in a pamphlet.
