Recommended here by a friend and it was worth finding. Interesting history, very poignant children's graves and just a really nice peaceful wander. They're doing their best with the upkeep relying on donations so if you go please give something however small or this little gem will be lost.

Lovely, unspoiled cemetery situated off the main road in the east section of the city. There's not much to see if you're looking for famous graves but there are beautiful shrubs, a meandering walk up a hill from where you get great views of the city and a general sense of peace.

What can a bunch of English graves tell you about the history of a Spanish town? Well, a lot more than you would think! Absolutely beautiful spot in the historic centre of Malaga, a place to rest, think and learn about historic events. Sad, romantic or heroic histoires all lay here waiting to be remembered. A must visit and please... More

The English Cemetery is quite interesting because it was the first cemetery in Spain that was created to bury non-Catholics. There are many famous non-Catholics who were buried here. Before the cemetery was approved by the authorities, non-Catholics had to be buried on the beach, which was not a good place to be buried because the sea would uncover the... More

I would echo the review of Farsante 2 who has given a detailed description to which it's difficult to add to. It's good to see it is more than an "English" cemetery with the graves of other nationalities including German, Spanish and of course the Irishman, Robert Boyd. The cemetery is run down and deserves support and more than the... More

This site is slightly off the tourist track & to be honest if you have been to some of the "Grand Cemetery" sites around the world - especially South America - you will be disappointed. Lack of funds, (all work done from donations) make this site feel very neglected. That said, take a walk around to view some of the... More

This chapel is very interesting with the fantastic people that have been laid to rest in the grounds of this little English church. It completely survives on the kindness of the public and the British Royal Navy when they come into Malaga harbour for a few days, they assist in cleaning up the graves and the gardens. Do see it...

Pleasant resting place of many children and people. There is a high traumatic death rate for many of its occupants and there is a little book you can buy in the entry lodge for 5 euros describing their stories. Most moving are the small shell graves of the children, many of whom died from infectious diseases. One family buried 3... More

If you are anywhere near the Bullring in Málaga, take the opportunity to look in on the English Cemetery. It is about a 10-15 minute walk from the Port and the Alameda Principal and 5 minutes or less from the Bullring. If you are visiting by car, it has a small area for parking inside, but on your way up... More
