Dying in Valparaiso: Cementerio Numero 1 II

So we return to our cemetery tour and to Cementerio Numero 1 in particular. Here are some more photos.

The views from the Cemetery are pretty spectacular...

The tall, slinky and in no way intrusive beauty in the foreground is the greatest building in Valparaiso...

...the Brown family would have been more than thrilled to see their legacy to Valparaiso torn down to be replaced by this marvel of the modern era.

Agustin Ross Edwards and his wife Susana de Ferari-part of the mega-wealthy and powerful Ross-Edwards dynasty.

The Guarello Family-still going strong well in the 90s. Still can't find any info about them though.

If you couldn't afford a plot then there was always space in the vaults.

I really like the simplicity of this tomb.

Cementerio Numero 2 on its way.
