Spanish Plaza park was created to commemorate the Spanish link and to commemorate Malaga, Spain. It is located between Church street and Government street. Beautiful statues and benches to honor the various cities in Spain were also present. A very pleasant park to know the Spanish connection to Mobile.

My family went to Mobile for the day. I looked up the things to do and this was one of them. A previous reviewer mentioned the homeless so I knew to be aware. We found the cemetery by chance and parked in the library parking lot. There were loiters on the steps and we had to find our way to... More

This a great old cemetery to walk through, but it actually closes at something like 4 p.m., which makes it difficult if you want to have that nice evening lighting by which to take photos.

Nice area to walk around in. The old cemetery is located next to the main library. This building is worth a walk through even if you don't check anything out. They don't build them like that anymore!

Went to Church street cemetery this morning. Based on other reviews I wanted to check it out. The history of the grave yard is fascinating but little to my surprise wen 3 homeless people was sleeping in there. Scared my girlfriend half to death when they started asking for money and then cussing us when we didn't give them any.

Being from New Orleans I've seen cemeteries time and time again. This one is unique the way it's hidden behind the Mobile Main library. It's full of history from founders, to even gruesome stories. Check this piece of history out.

Tons of charm, history, and beauty on Church Street and the downtown area. Too many to see in one weekend. We've spent 2 separate weekends in downtown Mobile and still haven't seen it all. I highly recommend the cemetary on Church Street. We can't wait to return.

This was an interesting place to take a stroll. We visited the resting place of Joe Cain and thought it was really neat that visitors had decorated his grave with Mardi Gras beads and doubloons. I would not visit at night! Would be very spooky seeing as how old this cemetery is.

This little treasure was tucked away between the library and the genealogical studies building. This is the third best grave yard I've been in so far, first being in Salem, MA, and second being in New Orleans, LA. This was a beautiful little excursion in Mobile although its not in the best part of town, it isn't in the worst... More
