Hauntingly beautiful.

this place has a somber vibe, but that's to be expected. interesting mix of graves, from very ornate to very basic. Keep a low profile and you will be rewarded.

It is a very cool cemetery, very clean and with many trees, it looks like a Botanic garden, since is for free, it is a worth visit.

Fascinating place to visit with multi-storey graves and beautiful walks through the cemetery. Always busy and very well kept.

This was the high light of my trip in sucre! It was a Sunday when I visited this cemetery so there where lots of locals selling flowers outside and inside cutting and placing flowers on loved ones graves.

The Cementario in Sucre is BEAUTIFUL. Paths lined with massive trees, stunning mausoleums and the iconic Bolivian blocks of graves above ground. Many presidents are buried here as well as other famous Bolivians. The Jewish memorial is also fascinating. Close to the city centre, it's easy to get to and well worth a little stroll around.

It may seem strange to visit a cemetery but it's a very intetesting place with lots of trees and flowers and benches to sit on. I went on a Sunday morning and it was very busy with lots of people bringing fresh flowers and cleaning around the graves.

The cemetery is truly a garden spot and worth a quiet walk anytime. While there are large mausoleums, most people are interred for 5-7 years in the small wall crypts, and then removed by family for final internment elsewhere.

Nice for an afternoon walk, as the grounds are well maintained with lots of green and benches. Quite crowded on the weekends!

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.

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