Catalog 2.02

The two cemeteries of Sappada are located near the two historical churches of Granvilla and Cima Sappada, respectively. In the latter, the graveyard surrounds the eastern portion of the church and is enclosed by a wall. The cemetery of St. Margaret parish church must also have been fashioned in a similar way originally. In the 19th century, this cemetary was eventually relocated slightly downhill from the church and enclosed by a quadrangular wall.
