Summary

The cemetery, located on the island of Lido, dates back to 1386.

The cemetery grounds began as a vineyard adjacent to the Benedictine monastery of San Nicolo di Mira. In the 1800s, a new cemetery was opened in an adjacent area.

Originally reserved for the Sephardim, the graves faced toward Venice.
