I visited the tomb of Matteo Ricci in Beijing.
He was buried in Zhalan cemetery (柵欄墓地)at the ground of the present Beijing Administrative College. It is not something easy to find by the casual visitor. The concierge at my hotel was not helpful. After a search among books on Beijing, I found a phone number that might be useful. When I called (86 10 68007011), and asked about Ricci’s grave, I was ecstatic when the woman said Matteo Ricci. I knew that I had finally made the connection. I made an appointment to see her the next day at 6 Chegongzhuang Street ( 車公莊大街 ). When I realized that I had a conflict the next day, I called back but there was no answer. I took a risk and went there right away. The official name of the site is “Graveyard of Matteo Ricci and Foreign Missionaries During Ming and Qing Dynasty” and is near the Second Ring Road. The numbering system is a little strange and it took a good ten minutes to walk from the corner to Number 6.
