Poblenou Cemetery

This place is a work of art. Some of the sculptures here are so unique that they have become iconic such as the Kiss of Death, which is so creepy and lifelike that it alone warrants a visit to the place. The cemetery is divided into three sections. The first is a labyrinth of seven-story high burial niches, typical of Spanish cemeteries. The second section is full of extravagant Neoclassical and Neo-Gothic tombs, mausoleums and Gothic style chapels built by Barcelona’s richest families. The third section is a mixture of niches, monuments and the fossar, or common grave as it’s known in English. This section is where Barcelona’s poor were buried.
