What you'll do

A cemetery is a place of retreat, a sanctuary of nature as well as a silent testimony of the past. It has always fascinated and even frightened those who did not understand it...

I invite you to learn how to unravel the mystery of a cemetery from the Victorian era to the present day, as well as to be able to recognize and interpret the history of the deceased through the beauty and complexity of the tombstones.
Other things to note
During the visit, we will of course talk about illnesses, tragedies and death. Some might not be comfortable, especially with the subject of infant mortality. Thanks for considering this.

Also, the activity offers very few stops where one can sit.
