Why does nobody mention that the great writer Herman Hesse is burried here? You can find his grave on the graveyard right opposite this church on the other side of the street.

He has written books like Steppenwolf, Siddharta, Under the Wheel, Narciss & Goldmund, ....

He was born in Calw/Germany, but became a citizen of Switzerland and moved to Lugano. He was and still is one of the greatest German writers of the 20th century and for many even of all time.
