40 Entrance to Glasgow Necropolis in Glasgow, Scotland

Visiting a cemetery during your vacation may not sound like a top attraction. The Glasgow Necropolis is a glorious exception. These 37 acres, previously the Fir Park, now contains over 50,000 grave sites. This front entrance gate was originally designed to be the tunnel entry to the graveyard. Within the tympanum is an inscription from the Merchants’ House of Glasgow, the group of local merchants who established the Necropolis in 1832.
