There's vendors outside who sell light snacks and drinks. I would recommend taking a walk around the entire cemetery. One of the locals I spoke too mentioned how you can see "the... More

Walked along Junin street from the Plaza 25 de Mayo (about 12 minutes) in order to reach this cemetery. Don't consider myself a "cemetery" person but walking around and seeing how the Bolivians of Sucre honor their dead was quite a sight to behold. The grounds are beautiful and the sheer number of people interred there is almost overwhelming. I... More

Interesting place to go. The best part is that it is well taken care of and is a pleasant retreat from the noise of the city.

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.

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.

Thank Loroito
