We were attracted to the grand entry building, and were pleasantly surprised at the rest of the cemetery. There are beautiful monuments from the last 2 centuries, While there we saw a horse drawn wagon used as a hearse. It is also a national museum, and we met the curator, Hilda Mola. She also runs an art program for the... More
Entered through a grand classical building which is reminiscent of the Parthenon in Athens, this is the more modern of the two cemeteries in Cienfuegos. Opened in 1926, the cemetery was laid out like a large garden with different trees in different areas, in which the monuments and paths are integrated into the landscape. In addition to the monuments of... More
I go there to see my family's burial places, has improved from the last time I was there, is well taken care of and a place to feel at ease.
The entrance building was quite nice. We drove through it briefly and respectfully. I wouldn't consider it an attraction to make time for but if you happen to be by it, it might be worth a look. It is the newer of the 2 cemeteries in Cienfuegos. La Reina is on the opposite side Cienfuegos.

Not very comfortable to reach, I am happy to have done it. The Necropolis is different from the one in Habana, Santiago e from the Cemetery La Reina in the same Cienfuegos. It was declared National Monument by its artistic values, architectural, historical and environmental factors. Different interesting graves and monuments can be seen (e.g. the one of Veterans of...
