Valle Maira – cemetery:
Between Celle di Macra and Palent we found this old cemetery in the mountains. I can not say exactly which church/cemetry it is. Even with the ma, be-cause the density of the churches in this region is so dense. It could be Addolorata, Vergine Assunta or Anna e Giuseppe (please comment if you know it for sure).
I was fascinated by the quietness and peacefulness of this cemetery and the rustic beauty of it. I do not know exactly where my fascination for cemeteries comes from. It it the quietness, the look back into time or simply the fact that the shortest way to school in my childhood was through the cemetery?
On this particular one, most graves had a photo of the loved ones on porcelain of the gravestones. The newest graves dated back to around 1940/1950 so the time when most of the inhabitants of Valle Maira left it. To say sorry for disrupting the quietness of this place I placed a flower on the latch of the gate.
