“Gorgeous a must see”
Reviewed 15 December 2012

This was one of my favorite places in Sucre. A must see--both for the incredible landscaping, pretty views and of course the graves themselves but also the locals who make visits every Sunday. Just go you won't regret it!

“Go on the weekend...”
Reviewed 8 July 2012

The cementary is a bit of a hike from city center but it is worth it. I went on a weekend and there were many families paying respect to their dearly departed... it was moving. The grounds are clean, and if you haven´t been to an above ground cementary, you should check it out. Some of the gravesites are very elaborated but I liked the more common stacked gravesites and how some families have decorated to honor their lost love ones...

“Beautiful Tribute”
Reviewed 10 February 2012

Although a little morbid the cemetery was a beautiful place to visit. Thenlawns were amazingly kept, the bushes cut into beautiful displays. The different mosoleums were neat to see. Worth a stop if nothing else to do.
