Huge cemetery
Mar 2019 • Couples
Take the number 10 bus from Plaza de Ponce, $1.40 each, to the cemetery. It takes around 15 minutes. The statues of toreadors and flamenco dancers are very good and worth seeing. We wandered around the rest of the cemetery and it’s very well kept. It’s always interesting to see how different cultures honour their dead but this is a much less interesting experience than, say, Milan’s cemetery or any of the Parisian ones.

Bullfighters rein
Feb 2017 • Couples
If you like to see art and the importance of bullfighters in Spain, you must go to this location. Aside from the first few pieces at the entrance, the balance is similar to most European cemeteries but so very different than most we are used to seeing.

A potentially interesting visit spoiled by rain
Jan 2016 • Couples
It is always interesting to wander around a cemetery, especially when you know something about the history and culture of the area. Sadly our visit was curtailed by heavy rain. However we did see the magnificent tribute to the great matador Joselito, together with the tombs of Belmonte and the friend of García Lorca and Alberti, Ignacio Sánchez Mejías.

An Homage to Bullfighters
Jul 2015 • Friends
I have a thing for cementeries. I like the quietness, cleanliness and the care that people show to their ancestors or those they admire. The San Fernando has a lot of statues of bullfighters and flamenco dancers. One is especially dramatic of a slain bullfighter being carrried by 7-8 mourners. I'm from California, USA and I liked seeing so many Spanish names that are still found in California. My niece and I took our lunch and we sat on a bench in the shade listening to the birds and enjoying the serenity of the place. The staff at the entry were helpful and gave me a guide of the most impressive or dramatic buriel sites. It was in Spanish which I don't speak or read but the photos were beautiful and I appreciated them giving it to me. I'm not sure that everyone gets one. If you like cemeteries then don't miss this one.

Good Art
Mar 2015 • Couples
My wife and I went to the Cementerio de San Fernando to look at the art there. The Monument to Joselito was created in 1920 by the famous sculptor Mariano Benlliure and is very impressive. Joselito was a famous torero who died in the bullring. Beside his monument is the monument of Paquirri, another famous torero who died in 1984. Nearby is the monument to Juanita Reina, a famous singer from Seville.
