The tombstones, which were produced at different periods, exhibit various styles and are a testimony of skilful artisticcraftsmanship in marble intarsia. replete with memento mori symbols and intended to appeal to the senses, these ledger stones provide an enduring tribute to the people who sought to be laid to rest in the sacred confines of the church.
