“Huge Resting Place. . .”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

This is a very big cemetery and you'll see all type of family and individual crypts as well as special monuments that were built to honor a celebrity or local hero. The church inside is very beautiful and unusual.

“Would never do this again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

5 CUC to get in, you get followed by a "guide" who only speaks spanish so if you don't understand, he will still follow you and ask for money at the end even though you didn't understand a word he said. he said he was with me because people go to the cemetery to masterbate behind tombstones ... who knows the truth behind this but it doesn't make you feel comfortable as a solo female traveler. wouldn't do it again, save your money
