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.

Stroll under the shade of tall trees lining the walkways, and pause for a break on one of the benches dotted around.

  • We went for a long walk from the centre to reach this place, and found it to be very quiet and surprisingly a quite lovely place for a stroll.  more »
  • The General Cemetery is a place of great vegetation and architectural sights and nature with the quiet atmosphere for studying sunbathing with sports shorts t-shirt and enjoy pure outdoor and relax with life and pray for the souls and the dead day grave

  • Beautiful cemetery, steeped in history, then visit this place by chance the Treasury Museum and grata visit was the surprise finding continuity with characters who rest in this cemetery as Prince Argandoña, Aniceto Arce, etc.etc.
