The Protestant Cemetery, now officially called the Cimitero AcattolicoNon-Catholic Cemetery” and often referred to as the Cimitero degli InglesiEnglishmen’ Cemetery” is a cemetery in Rome, located near Porta San Paolo alongside the Pyramid of Cestius, a small-scale Egyptian-style pyramid built in 30 BC as a tomb and later incorporated into the section of the Aurelian Walls that borders the cemetery. The presence of Mediterranean cypress, pomegranates, and other trees, and a grassy meadow suggests the more naturalistic landscape style of northern Europe, where cemeteries sometimes incorporate grass and other greenery. The earliest known burial is that of an Oxford student named Langton in 1738. The most famous graves are those of the English poets John Keats (1795-1821) and Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822). Keats died in Rome of tuberculosis at the age of 26.
