Argenta Gap War Cemetery reviews
I promised my grandma the day would come when I would visit the grave of my grandad. When she died we took her ashes thereto reunite them. The first sight of the graves is the cross rising above... more »
Very well kept cemetery.Met the gardener who does a very good job.Very nice man.
Returning from Alfonsine I stopped at this striking war cemetery; I had already been several times to Argenta, but I never did notice the presence of this place (also easily sighted by a flyover of the S.S. 16, at the junction for the city center). I followed the directions that led me on the spot through the surrounding countryside. The cemetery is completely surrounded by fields and there is not even a parking (you are forced to leave the car along the dirt track that leads to the entrance) and for this reason the atmosphere is surreal; To reign is the most total silence, interrupted from time to time only by the noise of the wind. Inside everything is very well cared for (as is customary at the cemetery structures of the rest of the Commonwealth) and the sense of peace that proves is absolute. The tombs are arranged in groups of 4 along the corners of the perimeter, leaving a greater breath to the central area where there is a memorial in white marble. More precisely, here are housed more than 600 dead soldiers following the wartime operations of Spring 1945 held in these areas. I would like to recommend the South African cemetery of Castiglione dei Pepoli (BO), which is also very suggestive from a landscape point of view.
