  • This is clearly the most important cemetery of Rosario, steeped in history, offer trips where they explain about the plates which are engraved the names of the dead and tell the story of these people. There are many people who have had to do with the construction of the city and the country buried there. It is beautiful beyond that is a cemetery, recommended place.

  • Safety pin... European... material unique and unrepeatable mausoleums... Very careful... works of art that today could not be built. For labour and materials costs

  • El Salvador stands as a monumental cemetery under the influence of European architectural and town-planning traditions. It occupies 5 hectares covered by the Ov streets. Lakes, Av. Pellegrini, Av. Godoy and Av. France, where there are more than 50,000 graves, an estimated. In this venue, family mausoleums of great architectural value building became popular since the end of the 19th century. Thus, the necropolis has an artistic heritage, historical and cultural that make it an ideal space for the development of activities offering local and foreign audiences a reminder of characters and past experiences valued by the community. Currently the cemetery El Salvador has an artistic and historical heritage worthy of rescue, enhance and disseminate to the Rosario and visitors to the city. In this regard, in addition to the services provided by a cemetery, joined those of dye cultural offering visitors tours that rescue part of our history.
