Scotland’s “city of the dead”, full of Victorian-era elegance and beauty.
Probably one of the most interesting sites in Glasgow is the Victorian-era cemetery referred to simply as the Necropolis. Located close to the Glasgow Cathedral, it is literally a “city of the dead”, a sprawling collection of tombs, mausoleums, and monument size gravestones. To enter, you take a short walk across the Bridge of Sighs (named so because the bridge was part of any funeral procession to the Necropolis) and start walking up the hill on any number of diverging paths that criss-cross the hillside. There are mausoleums built into the hill as you walk to the top, where the majority of the most impressive monuments are.
Despite the sinister implication of the name, the Necropolis itself is a very serene place that possesses the elegance and beauty that typifies Victorian-era stone work.
