If you've been to Buenos Aires, this is very similar but about 1/10th the size. Many large masoleums housing the deceased arisocrats of Bolivia. I opted to self-explore, but looking back, would choose to go with a guide. There's a section dedicated to children, and...More

First, please note that the cemetery is not a tourist attraction. It is a place where families visit loved ones and funerals are omnipresent, so respect is due both the living and the dead. Also, if you can go through with a guide, the experience...More

this is about a 15-20 mins walk from the plaza (in town).. down n uphill slightly. Nice place, very quiet, serene, benches to sit and contemplate the day.

I found the cemetery really intersting. It has differnt sections. There is one section where you find musicians. There are also some Jewish graves where you realize that WWII had impacts til Bolivia.

the cemetery is nice cause it has a lot of trees and is worth a visit if you don't have anything else to do.

Unless you have nothing else to do this isn't really worth the visit. It's a cemetery - and there are people mourning there. It doesn't seem right to be a tourist there

Never been to a cemetery that was so well attended and maintained. There's a real sense that people remember and celebrate those they've lost. Shocked at the number of people visiting there on a Sunday. Graves 'decorated' showing the individual's personality.

I was a tad dubious about visiting a cemetery, but once there I was glad I made the choice to go. It is beautifully set out, with charming walkways and nice open sitting areas. At the front are the opulent family crypts, obviously of the...More

This cemetery has many impressive mausoleums and some beautiful statuary. I was impressed by the abundance of shady trees, which gave the area a very park like feel. The front section has the old graves and mausoleums, while further back are more modern, humble graves.
