  • We were surprised with grandeur of works of art and architecture in this huge cemetery funeral. At the entrance there is a map of the major mausoleums citing the Brazilian public figures who were distinguished in your time. I would like to take part of any monitoring to meet the curiosities that hide there.

  • 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.

  • 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
