  • My wife and I we were in a guided tour during the week of the architecture, enbla first week of October. It is incredible that a walk through a cemetery is so interesting. They are really 3 cemeteries, the former is the epidemics, entering by the Avd Daroca, in front of the civilian, who is the second cemetery, and finally of the Almudena entering from the square. Apart from knowing the stories of the characters there are buried, there are monuments amazing, as the mausoleum of the last of Philippines, a tomb sculptured by Benlliure, and an endless number of cemeteries that are notable works of architecture. It is noteworthy that all the cemetery project, as well as the majestic entrance, Chapel and annexed buildings, are realmentebla most important Madrid and pure modernist work. Walking by the cemetery of epidemics and the civilian is a lesson in architecture and sculpture. It is a pity that there are no more tours and is more documented.

  • 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.
