  • The Central cemetery of the city of Montevideo is a living part of the history of Uruguay and its architecture reflects the culture and values of the society of the 18th and 19th century. It is a journey through the history of the patrician families of the Uruguay and their European mark reflects all a way of life and the economic power of that time.
