Modernist Cemetery, Lloret de Mar
(4.4/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Ornate gargoyles and angels look down on you as you stroll among the mausoleums in Modernist Cemetery. Designed and built around the turn of the century, the cemetery provides a snapshot of Catalan funerary art and architecture as it existed in the Modernist era. Most of the tombs belong to wealthy Indianos, a class of traders who made their fortune in the Americas before returning home to commission ornate homes and the mausoleums in this cemetery. Here you can see the work of sculptors and architects such as Josep Puig i Cadafalch, Antoni M. Gallissà i Soqué, and Vicenç Artigas i Albertí. Take a peaceful walk among the weathered monuments and read some of the inscriptions dating back to the 19th century. You will notice fresh flowers left by the loved ones of many of the people resting in the cemetery. Our Lloret de Mar vacation trip planner makes visiting Modernist Cemetery and other Lloret de Mar attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Randomly stopped in this place. Visited with pleasure. Very pretty (if applicable to the cemetery) and unusual. Be sure to visit!

  • An Odd Place To Visit, Next to the H-Top Royal Star Hotel. Very Well Kept, Worth Looking At Allow 30 Minutes. 
  • We made a short but pleasant visit to this modernist cemetery with the graves of persons of Lloret, with high economic level. All different pantheons and produced by artists of modernism. Worth having time and pay attention to the reading of each Pantheon and its history. These are works that out than usual from other cemeteries. It is also very clean and well kept.
