Vad du kommer att göra

Walking around the General Cemetery is a gift. Taking pictures a precious extra, and I will take you to what I think is visually most attractive. Clearly stratified, it features the particular "nichos" - storied graves - family graves, institutional crypts and ornate mausoleums, while also a peek into a world populated by care takers, gravediggers and stone layers, rarely recognized by anyone. Chileans visit the deceased frequently, exhibiting popular culture through the "personalization" of their last resting place: plastic flowers, windmills and even Christmas decorations abound. Almost 2 million people have been interred here since 1821, and arquitectural styles go from Gothic to Arabic, Art Deco to Neo Classical, Modernist, Eclectic and even neo Maya, while on a sunny day any photog may run out of memory (or battery). This "campo santo" (holy field) is pure eye candy, mixing past glory, history, heroes and villains, beauty, religion, derelict and decay, notable and invisible people plus the unstoppable passage of time in one powerful cocktail. I know this place well and can tell you some interesting stories about local history past. Just try i

Gerard

I am a trilingual (EN-ES-NL) semi-professional photographer and photography teacher with a love for history. For the last 5 years, I've been taking photography students here and they are always impressed by the majesty, the downfall and the historic relevance. It's called "An Open Air Museum" for something. To my knowledge, at least five past presidents and many outstanding citizens are buried here. For anyone who loves architecture, looks for insights on local culture, religion or enjoys derelict and decay, this is a photo tour you don't want to forego. Your pics will have your friends drool.

Var ni kommer att vara

The cemetery is divided in 2 by the Av. Limay E-W axis, which we access from the meeting point. To its north there are few locations of interest, while to its south sites of major value radiate out from a N-S axis, O'Higgins, which ends at the main entrance, Puerta La Paz. We'll work our way to the main entrance, past storied grave buildings, mausoleums of heroes and dignitaries, plus the tombs of 5 presidents, all with their particular history.
