The cemetery in my mom’s town, Palazzolo Acreide, is absolutely beautiful. It is clean and well-kept. It is different than the cemeteries I have seen here. Most graves include a tomb, and there are only a very few that do not have one; those are usually for the families who cannot afford it.
Usually people visit the cemetery every Sunday, either before or after going to church. Also, it is important that each grave has its own light, which is always kept lit up. When someone passes away, all the people in town who knew that person come together and they all walk from the church to the cemetery following the casket. This tradition is different from ours; we drive, while instead they walk.
