“A bit out-center, go if you have the time, especially on sunday”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Nice area to walk through, this place is the true Pere Lachaise of Sucre where Bolivians go to take care of the tombs of their loved ones but also to simply enjoy the peacefull yet full of live atmosphere.

Go on Sunday if possible.

Reviewed 7 August 2014

Went for a walk around the cemetery, very different to ours back in the uk. Worth a visit to see the local culture.

“Beautiful.”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Really nice cemetery, it shows a lot about Bolivian culture. Most graves in small buildings, all of them with some nice homage from the relatives in some small windows displays in front of it. Unique.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

People think I'm weird when I say I like this cemetery but you have to visit it to believe it.
Beautiful flowers everywhere, lots of benches, the tombs are well taken care of and the caretakers were respectful and unobtrusive.

I spent some time just wandering along the rows and rows, and thoroughly enjoyed my morning.
