Cementerios 1 & 2


The city's most illustrious, influential and infamous residents rest in peace in Cementerios 1 and 2, where the tombs look like ornate mini alaces. Nearby is the Cementerio de Disidentes, where English and European immigrants were buried.

The views from here are worthwhile in themselves. If you're up for the walk, you can get here by hiking up Av Ecuador.
