“Interesting history”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

If you have the time and are downtown, this is an interesting place to visit. I reluctantly went on a tour and enjoyed it. Beautiful tomb stones and much recent Peruvian history is here.

“Great tour”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

I took the bus from Miraflores. The tour from Miraflores is the last Tuesday of every month. It took us first around the city (Plaza de Armas, Plaza San Martin, Palacio de Gobierno) Very interesting tour. Don't forget your flashlight!

“here they have special guided visits only at night. Althoug you can visit it during the day.”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Even though it is a Cementery from the XIIIV and XIX Century it is lijke a major museum as you can see all the beautiful sculptures. But it is way far from the city and located in an old neighborood .

“Depende / It depends”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

It depends if you are the kind of person who likes to see burial grounds, this is the one you must see, it has amazing shrines to see, they have also a night tour visit, for the ones who like "mystery things"

It is a beautiful cementery but is not well maintained and lots of the marble sculptures have been stollen.
