Cementerio Barichara, Barichara

4.5
#4 of 18 in Historic Sites in Santander Department
Take some time away from the city and head to Cementerio Barichara, known for its intricately carved gravestones adorned with grey iron crosses. A calm square and a small, charming church in picturesque environs flank the cemetery, and each carved headstone seems to tell an allegory specific to that person's life, adding an unusual and interesting element to the graves. Head inside the church to survey an ornate carving of the Last Supper.
