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.

  • Some of the gravestones in this cemetery are very particular, as they escape from religious motives and have forms and elements of the everyday life of persons that identify, a soccer ball, a pet, all carved in piedar with great skill.

  • We walked here on Saturday morning. Some other visitors were there, some people gave the plants on the graves of their loved ones water. There are some ancient tombs, and there are some graves where local sculptors have made for a nice funeral arrangement. All in all, not at all sad to walk around

  • This was an intertwining cemetery featuring local stone mason headstones that reflected something about the deceased. My favorite included a guitar and a fedora!  more »
