Established in 1820 and housing nearly two million burials, the General Cemetery of Santiago (Cementerio General de Santiago) is both the largest and oldest cemetery in the country. With rows of ornate sculptures and mausoleums broken up by gardens of palm trees, a walk through the cemetery may as well be a lesson on the stylistic evolution of architecture itself, in addition to being a memorial.
