  • Unfortunately, this cemetery is a sign of disregard of the Town Hall of the greater metropolis of Latin America. Gravestones that are true works of art, but some are broken; the place is dirty and bumpy pavement.

  • Seems to be a bit morbid to visit a cemetery but it is worth it for many reasons: to remind us of our mortality, enjoy the art tomb and to see a bit of history of the city and their immigration. It is worth walking in this wooded area and breathe a bit of the past.

  • I visited this cemetery and say the place has beautiful monuments, one I liked was the family Basilio Jafet, though not scoured the entire cemetery. There is a very peaceful environment, suspect to say that because I like to visit cemeteries, and celebrities are buried like Monteiro Lobato, Marchioness of Santos, among others. One thing I didn't like-there were homeless people bathing in the water fountains.

  • Bons exemplos de arte tumular.
  • a real oasis of quietude in the middle of the city. very interesting place to walk around and the many pieces of art and beautifully crafted tombs of some notorious public figures.
  • A must. Dozens of pieces of art by famous artists, a few of them by Victor Brecheret.
  • Gostamos de rezar
  • Um belo passeio
