Fodor's Review

A little farther west, at the entrance to town, lies this sculpture-filled campo santo, founded in 1813 and declared a national monument in 1994. It's worth a stroll through the San Francisco section, overflowing with ornate mausoleums and lovely tomb sculptures, backed by views of distant mountains.
