The English Cemetery at Malaga is an interesting little place to visit and wonder around with the maps provided. It was built to bury non catholics in Malaga.

Really not worth a visit, especially since they charge a ridiculous entrance fee (€4/person). There are few proper paths and the cemetery is very neglected with mostly broken and/or unreadable headstones and nobody buried there of any note. When we visited much of it was...More

Well worth the 3 Euros to support the maintenance at this beautiful cemetery. It is a very short walk from the bull ring and they have a map in English.

It's an interesting place to visit with an interesting story (a place to bury non catholic people), nice graves (especially the ones covered with sea shells), but the most part are very new (buried in the 70s 80s or 90s)
