    Curious is a cemetery in the middle of the street, and is crossed by a highway. Crossing it ends up being kind of mandatory when leaving the botanical gardens towards the Center

    Right in the heart of the city. Well worth a visit coming down from the cable car and botanical gardens. The graves are all over the place but that adds to the mystic.  more »

    I've always loved walking around old cemeteries, and I really enjoyed this one. There was a large map at the entrance, but we still kind of got lost. That's ok and kind of part of the fun.  more »

  • An incredible place to contemplate death and the past. History is very much alive in this cemetery that tells its story on each headstone. If you enjoy introspection and thoughtfulness, you should definitely visit this place.
  • Very interesting with historic graves and super steep brutalist bridges over the motorway that cuts the cemetery on halfs.
  • It's quite small and usually quiet, if you can ignore the motorway noise. Hardly ever see anybody around this park. Great place to sit, unwind and read a book during your lunch break.
  • Quiet and relaxing old cemetery. Well kept. Good for a stroll away from the cars.
  • Interesting, different place to visit. Thoroughly enjoyed reading the interesting head stones.
