Summary

Here is one of great secrets of a great city: the most concentrated accumulation of art is not in a museum, but out in the open.

In the famous cemeteries of Pittsburgh, you'll find sculptures and stained glass by the most celebrated artists, and mausoleums by the nation's top architects. Some of the monuments are serenely beautiful. Some of them are jaw-droppingly kitschy.

Join popular Pittsburgh writer Father Pitt for an unforgettable tour of the Greater Pittsburgh Necropolitan Area, with splendid photographs, fascinating commentary, and dozens of opportunities to say, "I can't believe this exists."
