This site is slightly off the tourist track & to be honest if you have been to some of the "Grand Cemetery" sites around the world - especially South America - you will be disappointed. Lack of funds, (all work done from donations) make this...More

The English Cemetery at Malaga is an interesting little place to visit and wonder around with the maps provided. It was built to bury non catholics in Malaga.

Really not worth a visit, especially since they charge a ridiculous entrance fee (€4/person). There are few proper paths and the cemetery is very neglected with mostly broken and/or unreadable headstones and nobody buried there of any note. When we visited much of it was...More

Well worth the 3 Euros to support the maintenance at this beautiful cemetery. It is a very short walk from the bull ring and they have a map in English.
