Friedhof St Sebastian, or St Sebastian Cemetery, is an old cemetery in Salzburg, Austria. It is located within the World Heritage Site core zone, and dates back to the 15th century. It was designed in the Italian campo santo style. Burial sites are surrounded by columns.
Friedhof St. Sebastian has beautiful sculptures and tombstones. Beside the St Sebastian church is the tomb of Paracelsus, the father of pharmacology, who died in Salzburg in 1541. In the middle of the cemetery is the Chapel of the Archangel St Gabriel. This is also the mausoleum to Archbishop Wolf Dietrich, one of the most famous archbishops of Salzburg. Mozart's father Leopard and his wife Constanze were also buried in Friedhof St. Sebastian.
