The cleanest place we visited in Bolivia. Seriously. And it's interesting to see the mausoleums. People from Bolivia go there for coffee, chats, and to read a book. It's beautiful and definitely something to check out.

This is an amazing place (as many cemetaries in Southamerica), the aerial view from the teleferico resembles a factory, but there is a lot of beauty, nature and peace once inside the walls. The dead are stapled in urnes, five on top of each other in long rows, similar to Italy. In the windowsone finds pictures, flowers, electronic gadgets, miniture... More

We went here by accident but happy we did. It was nice to see all the different tombstones. It's well maintained and has plenty of plants and trees. 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

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.
