  • True works of funerary art can be observed on this tour. There are buried several personalities who helped build the history of the city. Some sculptures have been awarded internationally. Can be scheduled a tour.

  • It's a cemetery, with interesting works of art. Cultural tour that can be held by a guide, but it is available only during the week (Tuesdays and Fridays) or also by application "CONSOLATION CEMETERY GUIDE" in which your visit is self-guided tour! I made the visit on a Sunday and found useful the app. (Do also use insect repellents). I hope I have helped you with my evaluation, thanks for a laugh! * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

  • I know q is not a q ride most people enjoy, but the visiting the cemeteries is very common all over the world. Calm, peaceful place, with beautiful sculptures, and nice story. But good would have had a "tab" q told the stories. I know q offer this service through the program "art Tomb", but the visit has q be scheduled in advance. The site is wooded and quiet, and stands on a busy Avenue. At the entrance says to not take pictures if not authorized, but understood q should be as here in BH: don't take pictures of names, families, messages and etc, not to expose even the deceased and the family. But shooting, without being specific, I don't have problem. From qquer form, worth catching in the administration.

  • Very nice picture spot for sculpture and architecture buffs. Medium sized, very tranquil and safe. Free entrance and smartphone guided tours available. Bonus: lots of wildlife around for extra pictures.
  • Ok
  • 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.
  • diverse and Tomb art, some of them very deteriorated. It's nice to see ebós dispatched alongside Catholic jesus Christ Bylaw for example. the cemetery has a visit by your poop that extends the relationship with the cemetery so odd.
