  • I loved it and found the general guided tour very interesting, through the Town Hall. Olga's explanation has been fantastic and enjoyable. Several parts of the cemetery are visited, including the Civil And Jewish Cemetery; also the oldest part. The mausoleum area is impressive. The penalty, which have failed several people thus taking away the possibility of other petitioners.

  • A pity that I did not have much time, but what I saw I liked very much, it is huge! It is hard to navigate it but has history and small very interesting architectural remnants if any time is a good ride

  • Over five million people are buried, stacked and stored as ashes in Madrid’s biggest graveyard. Its size and layout make it feel like more of a city than a cemetery – it has a historic centre, named streets, and neighbourhoods with different characters. You’ll find upmarket areas with mansions for the rich and famous, detached houses, workers’ apartment blocks, the poor neglected parts of the city and, last but not least, an anarchist squat. La Almudena might not seem like an obvious sight to see – if, arguably, a sight at all – but its history, stunning sculptures and surprisingly abundant wildlife make this cemetery worth a visit.
