Havana

Havana is home to one of the world’s largest and most captivating cemeteries, a must-see for the curious-minded. It’s not just enormous in size but also grandiose and eccentric in style, and filled with innumerable characters from Cuba’s absorbing history. As cemeteries go it is far from being an austere place, instead, it is more like walking through an outdoor museum. In Spanish, it is known as "Necrópolis Cristóbal Colón" (and sometimes "Cementerio de Cristóbal Colón"), named after Christopher Columbus. The cemetery was completed in 1876 and to date has over 56 thousand tombs and over 500 mausoleums. In total, well over a million people have been interred here.
