Monaco’s beautiful south-facing cemetery is a place of peace and repose, and a new initiative by the Town Hall will make the last resting place more user-friendly for those who wish to visit, perhaps on November 1, All Saints’ Day.

Three new information points will tell the visitor where a particular tomb is situated, together with directions. All that’s needed is a name. A QR code will allow the visitor to upload the information on his or her Smartphone, in any one of four languages: French, English, Italian and Spanish.

The interface is also accessible at the town hall’s website. The cemetery already houses 2,500 burial plots, and has enough room for new arrivals for the next 20 years.
