  • Visit relates very well the history of the cemetery with the city. It is recommended to do this visit first and then the cemetery of Montjuïc. It is very pleasant.

  • Interesting visit that gives an idea of the evolution of the city of Barcelona from life intramuros to the expansion that gives way to a new way of burying the dead in niches. Something never seen until then. On the other hand shows the rise of the bourgeoisie of the city and its economic power. It is clear that the cemetery is a reflection of the city of Barcelona, worthy of mention are the some cemeteries and some remarkable statues. The visit is entertained by an excellent guide and free the first Sunday of the month. In catalan to the 10'30 and in Spanish at 12'30 hrs. It is worth.

  • The cemetery is really well maintained and signposted. The iconic "Kiss of Death" statue/headstone was particularly worth seeing. It's a very peaceful place and contains some really beautiful, if mela...  more »

  • This is a fairly typical European cemetery, with relatively few mausoleums and tombstones but quite a number of family burial niches, walls with a niche for a memorial plaque and space for photos, small person objects, and so on. There's a large memorial to the victims of the 1821 outbreak of yellow fever, with special commemoration of the doctors who treated the sick, and the graves of several Catalan historical and artistic figures, If you like cemeteries as an insight on cultural history, you'll find it interesting. The cemetery is famous, though, for the sculpture El Peto de la Mort (The Kiss of Death in English, El Beso de la Muerte, in Spanish) which shows Death as a winged skeleton kissing the brow of a remarkably handsome young man. Some say that this sculpture inspired Ingmar Bergman's film The Seventh Seal. The tomb is of Josep Llaudet Soler, though the sculptor is unknown. The cemetery is fairly small and you can pick up a map of the graves of historic or artistic interest at the entrance.
  • Not on the scale of Montjuic, but serene and quite beautiful. Worth a look if you're anywhere near Poblenou.
  • It's really quiet place where you will have a special feeling of calm, rest. And death can be beautiful.
  • Interesting cemetery to visit if you're into huge funerary monuments. It is one of the older cemeteries in town with some huge and beautiful monuments in the old part of the cemetery, where you can also learn a bit about some of the past residents of Barcelona.
  • Fantastic place with a quietness that is hard to find elsewhere in Barcelona.

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
