  • It seems like a park more than a cemetary. It is a good to spend a few hours here. If you went with a tour guide It would be even more interesting.  more »
  • A very impressive and big cemetery near the city centre (20 minutes going from the central square). Note that families often visit the place, especially on sundays.  more »
  • It is an old places where we can find nature, tradition and history. Simply beautiful...
  • When my Spanish teacher and I were tired of walking she picked this cemetery because she knew it was a quiet and peaceful place to continue our lesson. It's the nicest cemetery I've ever been in and I didn't feel uncomfortable being there because they hold a different regard for the dead and this cemetery was treated like a park.
