  • 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. 
  • a common cemetery. It is worthwhile cultural activities that make there. is a small, beautiful... but I don't see anything worth going to meet there.

  • Kind of interesting to walk around and see all the grave decor and sculptures. No decent food nearby so you'll need to find somewhere else to eat.

  • 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.
