Interesting visit! Hard to find without a knowing cab driver. Guide meets you at the entrance and takes you on a small tour (20 mins?). All free. Much is in disrepair but interesting nonetheless! It can get VERY hot as it is a walled cemetery.

Tombs and grottos of all the famous names that are liked to the past of Cuba. Beautifully maintained and a wonderful, quiet place to visit when you want to get away from the hustle and bustle.
