Top Definition
From Greek, denoting The City of the Dead, nowadays a churchyard, a graveyard. Also necropola. Underground necropolis is called catacombs.
Graveyard School of Poetry poets often broded over life and death surrounded by the gloomy miasma and rotting putrefactions of so rueful a place as a necropolis.

Morbid, gothic, chilly tourist attraction.

Hill on outskirts of Glasgow city, covered in with hundreds of graves - from small unmarked stones to massive mausoleums. A solitary footpath winds round the Necropolis, spiralling round the crest of the hill to the top. Found next to Glasgow Cathedral.

Creepy as shit at night. Not much better in the day but at least you can see where you're going.
'It's getting late, lets take a short cut through the Necropolis.' 'Yeah, great idea!'
