Cementerio General

Chilean presidents, writers, artists, and legends are buried in this extensive cemetery crisscrossed by tree-lined avenues. Its different sections, which reflect divisions among Chilean society itself, hold everything from a potter’s field to ornate marble mausoleums that are as large as houses and all but groan beneath allegorical sculptures and gold leaf inscriptions. A variety of tours focus on different subjects ranging from the history of the cemetery to aspects of contemporary Chile. Nighttime tours are also available.
