The city's most illustrious, influential and infamous residents rest in peace in Cementerio 1, where the tombs look like ornate mini palaces. Adjoining it is Cementerio 2, including the Cementerio de Disidentes ('dissident cemetery') where English and European immigrants were buried.

Despite the name, these departed souls weren't rabble-rousers; they were simply Protestants, and therefore not accepted at the traditional cemeteries. The views from here are worthwhile in themselves. If you're up for the walk, you can also get here by hiking up Av Ecuador.
