Ever considered visiting… a cemetery?

cementerio-san-isidro-panoramica

Todays Spanish holiday, All Saints’ Day, inspired us to write about one of our very unique visits.

Maybe you have noticed it walking or cycling along the Madrid Río park. The cemetery of San Isidro, the oldest still exisiting cemetery of Madrid. It lies on the south bank of the river, towering over the city. Located there, outside of the city center, in the 1850s so that the stench and the gases from the graves wouldn’t reach the city…

Nowadays we can enjoy the graveyard, wandering around the monuments and family chapels, but this place houses many famous objects such as the ‘Pantheon of the illustrious men’ or the floating tomb of Francisco Godía Petriz.
If you are curious about the stories behind the graves then book a guided visit though MadWay.

As an excursion by itself, but also easily combined with one of our cycling tours, such as the Crisis close-up tour. We have excellent guides that can even get you into some of the pantheons… To get an up close and personal experience! Visit our website for more information or contact us by email for a tailor made proposal!
