Protestant Cemetery

The Non-Catholic Cemetery for Foreigners in Testaccio (Via Caio Cestio 6, Rome) is also widely known as the Protestant Cemetery although it contains the graves of many Orthodox Christians, Jews, Muslims and other non-Christians. It is one of the oldest burial grounds in continuous use in Europe, having started to be used around 1716.

The Cemetery population is both exceptionally diverse and exceptionally rich in writers, painters, sculptors, historians, archaeologists, diplomats, scientists, architects and poets, many of international eminence, as: Axel Munthe, John Bell, John Keats, Sarah Parker Remond.
