The Cemetery, situated in the heart of the city of Malaga is the last resting place of many notable figures from the English, Spanish and Foreign Communities settled in or visiting Andalucia and particularly the Costa del Sol. The burials that have taken place over the years provide a unique historical record of the British and other Protestant Christian communities who have resided on the Costa del Sol since 1831.

Well worth the 3 Euros to support the maintenance at this beautiful cemetery. It is a very short walk from the bull ring and they have a map in English.

It's an interesting place to visit with an interesting story (a place to bury non catholic people), nice graves (especially the ones covered with sea shells), but the most part are very new (buried in the 70s 80s or 90s)

A visit here opens up some of the history of Malaga in an intriguing way. Walking up the path from the gatehouse to the church and up and down the various levels of the cemetery, strong shoes help, you travel back to the 18 th...More

I read that this cemetery originated from Moorish times as a place to bury "infidels". I saw no sign of such an ancient history. Nonetheless it was quaint and interesting.

Very interesting little cemetery near the bullring. Established by the British consul in 1875 as the first Protestant cemetery in Spain. Only Catholics could be buried on consecrated church land and Protestants had to be buried on the beach. There's also the Anglican Church of...More
