Where is Bonaventure Cemetery?
Anyone who has experienced this place will never forget it – the unique atmosphere and fascination that Bonaventure Cemetery exudes is truly incredible.
On the quiet banks of the Wilmington river lies the world-famous cemetery with its mystical Southern Gothic columns and monuments, on the vast grounds of a former plantation, with ferns, azaleas, dwarf palms and the ubiquitous ‘Spanish Moss’ mysteriously hanging down from the centuries-old ‘living oaks’.
Powerful, beautiful sculptures, meter-high obelisks and weathered mausoleums merge here with the unique, wild nature of Savannah to form a monumental overall picture, such as no film backdrop could even remotely depict. The breathtaking atmosphere of the southern states – hardly anywhere is it as authentic and fascinating as at this historic and venerable resting place in Savannah’s Southeast.
