The beautiful side of creepy...

As you travel throughout Europe, you see a lot of tombs, sarcophagi, bedazzeled saints and such.  I always find them intriguing.  Just in time for Halloween, I decided to share some pictures of one of the most hauntingly beautiful and strikingly eerie cemeteries I ever experienced on our travels.

Welcome to a taste of Milan's Cimitero Monumentale di Milano:

While the theme of the art is obviously grim, some of Milan's most notable sculptors are featured within, making it seem a mix of museum and tranquil resting place.
