Merry Cemetery (Sapanta)

Sapanta is faimous of its merry cemetery. A number of 800 wooden, colourful tombstones were sculpted by a local artist, Ioan Stan Patras between 1935 and 1977. The naive paintings and the poetic, funny inscriptions feature one representative moment or the death of the persons burried there.

Access: In Spanta from road nr. 19 we turn on road DJ183.
