Cemeteries can be interesting places to find some fascinating artwork as well as quiet places to walk in otherwise busy cities. Here are some of my favourite ones.
Père Lachaise Cemetery is Paris is well-known and has some very interesting statuary and “residents”.
La Recoleta Cemetery is the large cemetery in Buenos Aries with many famous Argentinians buried there, including Eva Perón.
I stumbled upon a massive cemetery in Sao Paolo, Brazil. I thought it had interesting art, then I came to the edge of the cemetery and saw there was so much more. This is the largest cemetery I’ve every seen.
My last suggestion is the cemetery in Santiago de Cuba. Not only does it have a memorial to Jose Marti with a changing of the guard and other famous memorials.
One of the most interesting posts I’ve come across recently.
I found you through the A-Z sign up page and look forward to taking a stroll through your corner of the blogosphere 🙂

INteresting post. Thank you. I’ve seen a couple of Paris cemetaries, but not the one you mention. Perhaps next time I visit.

And I hope to get to some of the other cemeteries when I head back to Paris. I just never seem to have enough time!
