  • 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.

  • The cemetery Museum houses many works of art, unknown to a lot of people. There are works that meet and remember.

  • We went to this cemetery expecting it to be like one of Paris' spooky old cemeteries, but we were disappointed. It is well built and pretty but not overly memorable.

  • Muy buenos eventos culturales
  • The cemetery Museum contains a unique magic and its spaces evoke the theme of death in a cultural way. Here are the remains of the main characters of the Antioquian history.
