Located a couple of miles away from the Keats/Shelley museum-house is the Protestant Cemetery where the two poets are buried. Often referred to as the "Englishmen's Cemetery", it is located near the Porta San Paolo (a Roman garrison barracks protecting part of the ancient wall of Rome) and next to the Pyramid of Cestius. In addition to Keats and Shelley, other notable personages buried here include an American Minister to Italy from mid-19th century, a US ambassador to Italy from mid-20th century, the first Ambassador to Italy from India, and a Prussian General.
