  • It is a very nice cemetery walks, the penalty is that more q is the oldest cemetery of Madrid, this very careless, disorganized and there is even a map with signs. It is very difficult to find the tombs of famous people.

  • The largest cemetery in Madrid and one of the largest in Europe. According to various sources here buried more than 5 0000 0000 (five million) people. Many famous people were buried, in particular Antonio Molina (singer of Cante flamenco), Fernando Rey (actor). The Cemetery will be interesting to those who know Spanish, as inscriptions on gravestones in Spanish. The bottom line: visit recommend very much.
