Cementerio Barichara, Barichara

4.5
#4 of 18 in Historic Sites in Santander Department
Cemetery Tourist Spot
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.

  • It's worth spending a few minutes in this peaceful spot on the edge of town. Apart from the solemnity of the place, it is highly regarded for the work of local stonemasons in preparing the headstones....  more »
  • Quite interesting with head stones from many famalies over the lst 100 years or so. There is also a stone depiction of the last supper.  more »
  • The cemetery shows the use of local stone cutting on tombstones. An interesting way to spend an hour.  more »
