Necrópolis Tomás Acea
Necrópolis Tomás Acea information
One of two national-monument-listed resting places in Cienfuegos, the Acea is classed as a 'garden cemetery' and is entered through a huge neoclassical pavilion (1926) flanked by 64 Doric columns modeled on the Parthenon in Greece. This cemetery contains a monument to the marine martyrs who died during the abortive 1957 Cienfuegos naval uprising. It's 2km east of city center along Av 5 de Septiembre.
