Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Catalonia / Province of Girona / Costa Brava / Lloret de Mar / Modernist Cemetery
Ornate gargoyles and angels look down on you as you stroll among the mausoleums in Modernist Cemetery. Designed and built around the turn of the century, the cemetery provides a snapshot of Catalan funerary art and architecture as it existed in the Modernist era. Most of the tombs belong to wealthy Indianos, a class of traders who made their fortune in the Americas before returning home to commission ornate homes and the mausoleums in this cemetery. Here you can see the work of sculptors and architects such as Josep Puig i Cadafalch, Antoni M. Gallissà i Soqué, and Vicenç Artigas i Albertí. Take a peaceful walk among the weathered monuments and read some of the inscriptions dating back to the 19th century. You will notice fresh flowers left by the loved ones of many of the people resting in the cemetery. By using our Lloret de Mar road trip planning website, you can arrange your visit to Modernist Cemetery and other attractions in Lloret de Mar.

A tranquil and well kept graveyard with some amazing monuments, well worth a walk around if you like that sort of thing. Reminded me of a Cosa Nostra funeral scene
