  • Beautiful historical cemetery with great views of the city on the far end of it. The place is easy to access and the roads are wide enough to go around the place by car if you prefer that over walking around. Lots of places to stop and to snap beautiful photographs. Highly recommended.
  • Great place to have a picnic with your family surrounding your departed. Serene environment coupled with ample shade from some of the oldest trees you’ll see that have survived countless storms. This cemetery is home to a lot of families that help build the city so please give all the respect towards your surroundings.
