General Cemetery, Sucre

(4.3/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Admire the diversity of graves and peaceful surroundings of General Cemetery, a tranquil and ornate cemetery that shelters the graves of many of Bolivia's important political figures. This vast cemetery has countless graves, from massive mausoleums to small headstones, often decorated in colorful and personal ways with photos of the departed, offerings, and memorabilia. Stroll under the shade of tall trees lining the walkways, and pause for a break on one of the benches dotted around. Vendors outside the cemetery sell snacks and beverages, and you'll likely notice locals spending time walking the grounds, talking, drinking coffee, or simply reading a book. Put General Cemetery on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Sucre vacation trip planner.

  • Amazing place to visit. There are few sections where you can see a pretentious tombs for rich people as well as poor graves. Important place for locals who follow the catholic traditions.
