Finding the Cementerio de Cristóbal Colón was one of the highlights of my visit to Havana. Colón, founded in 1876, is located in the neighbourhood of Vedado, Havana. It’s huge – about 140 acres. I wandered around for several hours but still didn’t manage to see all of it. But of what I did see, the place is jammed packed with all sorts of graves, both for the rich and the poor. It didn’t surprise me to learn that space here is now at a premium!
What other cemetery in the world is worth a visit because it’s photogenic or atmospheric?
