Marazion (Cornish: Marghasyow) is a community and a place in the former district of Penwith County Cornwall in England. The place is located on Mount's Bay, 2 km east of Penzance on the Great Western Railway. At low tide, a dam connects the island of St. Michael's Mount with Marazion. The church of St Hilary, which was destroyed in a fire in 1853, was reconstructed true to the original. Archaeologists are more interested in their cemetery. Some of the stones are from the fourth century, one of which was made in honor of Emperor Constantine the Great. Another has a caption with Cornish characters, which can not be deciphered anymore. Next to it are British and Roman crosses.
