Cementerio de Granada
This cemetery was built in the mountains in Granada high above Alhambra. The main building of the cemetery has a cafe on the bottom floor. The cemetery has a map so that visitors know where they are but because of its vast size I got lost. There are fountains and small streams and even a small park in this cemetery.
The last picture is from a lookout at the highest point of the cemetery.
It may seem rather morbid to post pictures of graves but I am posting them because the story of how a culture celebrates life is reflected in the cemeteries.
There were very few graves that did not have flowers on them. Families going to a great expense to commission an artist to carve their grave monuments seems to say how important the lives of their loved ones are.
The most beautiful monument that I saw is the one in the second picture.
