PUBLIC MAUSOLEUM CRYPTS - Villamagna Town Cemetery, Villamagna, Chieti, Abruzzo, ITALY

The first thing that you see when you look at this picture is all the flowers! These crypts are visited often by family members. Almost all the crypt fronts have cameo pictures of the deceased entombed within. Notice that the crypt fronts are indented a bit to allow for a small ledge so that votive candles or vases with flowers can be placed outside the crypt front. Also take notice of the empty crypts awaiting entombment.
