  • Although small, the cemetery keeps many important figures in the history of the country, from writers to Presidents, you can visit all the tombs, true missing care but it is worth

  • Although it is a place where rest which became best can be seen in this beautiful place the artistic work of many sculptors, who have carved the stone, marble and other materials with which have given way to sentiment that projected each of the people who I wish to pay tribute to their loved ones.

  • A different evening for an October 31. One buys in the beneficence of Lima entry, which includes transfer and entry to the cemetery at night, where present in three different places the play Don Juan Tenorio. In addition to that it is a place full of jewels of art where you look. We went with a group of friends and we love. Super recommended
