  • In my country, cemeteries tend to be very solemn and boring, then I was surprised pleasantly visit to this cementerio-museo. sSu is structure is very different, because there are mausoleums, in general the tombs are almost all recessed in walls, and people you can decorate them to your liking. It is interesting and poignant at the same time. Some important personalities buried there are here too. I highly recommend it.
