Admire the diversity of graves and peaceful surroundings of General Cemetery, a tranquil and ornate cemetery that shelters the graves of many of Bolivia's important political figures. This vast cemetery has countless graves, from massive mausoleums to small headstones, often decorated in colorful and personal ways with photos of the departed, offerings, and memorabilia. Stroll under the shade of tall trees lining the walkways, and pause for a break on one of the benches dotted around. Vendors outside the cemetery sell snacks and beverages, and you'll likely notice locals spending time walking the grounds, talking, drinking coffee, or simply reading a book.

  • It seems like a park more than a cemetary. It is a good to spend a few hours here. If you went with a tour guide It would be even more interesting.

  • A very impressive and big cemetery near the city centre (20 minutes going from the central square). Note that families often visit the place, especially on sundays.
