A suburb in Tomar where nobody wants to go indefinitely

I know that this isn’t exactly a touristic spot in the City of Tomar and it is the kind of suburb where nobody wants to go indefinitely. I am talking about the Cemetery of Tomar located at Rua de Santa Iria, and a few metres away from the headquarters of the firefighters of Tomar. It is here that some members of my family are resting for eternity, at least the remains of their bodies as I believe that the soul survives physical death. There was a time this cemetery was in the outskirts of Tomar. Now it’s very central, close to Avenida Norton de Matos, and the church of Santa Maria dos Olivais.
