For great views and some climbing (easy) exercise it is great to walk over there. Great views over bay. Great mausoleum on the hill

Worth it for the views and history of why it was built back in the 1920's. Pity the poor artisans who had to haul all that stone and materials up 200 plus steps.

We paid to enter the Mausoleum and read the story of why it was built. It is so sad. The walk up to the graveyard not easy, lots if steps but worth the walk.

Was a interesting visit BUT only for a few minutes, veiws were OK but think there were better else where. The CLIMB up the steps was hard, not possible for anybody with walking problems.

If you go through the car park at the other side of town past the tourist office and head out towards the headland there is a path that leads to steps up to the cemetery. These are not too obvious and the cemetery is not... More
