This place goes on for blocks. A guide is suggested. The grounds are well-kept, and many of the tombs are artistic masterpieces in themselves. I have a real problem with anything, anywhere being named for Christopher Columbus, but it's not the Cubans fault.

Don't go unless you are real into cementaries. I think paying 5 CUC to hang around the cementary is not worth it. Some things look cool but there are more things in Cuba than this.

Spent a few hours wandering through this amazing cemetery in Vedado. Amazing art work; some celebs (i.e. Ibrahim Ferrer of Buena Vista Social Club) and great stories (such as La Milagrosa's). We took numerous photos, read many inscriptions, shamelessly people watched and enjoyed the place's...More

This place is an interesting place to visit. It should take around one or two hours walking. There are some guides in the entrance who can explain everything. You could see the tomb of a woman who locals calls Milagrosa and is considered a saint....More

This cemetery is big and keep in mind to have sun protection with you, because you cannot walk under a lot of trees in the middle of the day. There is a map (has to be bought though) and if you do not have a...More

This cemetery is undoubtedly beautiful and moving, however, it's actually not free to get in, which I find a bit tasteless given it's a burial place.
