About your host

I am a trilingual (EN-ES-NL) semi-professional photographer and photography teacher with a love for history. For the last 5 years, I've been taking photography students here and they are always impressed by the majesty, the downfall and the historic relevance. It's called "An Open Air Museum" for something.

What we’ll do

Walking around the General Cemetery is a gift. Taking pictures a precious extra, and I will take you to what I think is visually most attractive.

Where we'll be

The cemetery is divided in 2 by the Av. Limay E-W axis, which we access from the meeting point. To its north there are few locations of interest, while to its south sites of major value radiate out from a N-S axis, O'Higgins, which ends at the main entrance, Puerta La Paz. We'll work our way to the main entrance, past storied grave buildings, mausoleums of heroes and dignitaries, plus the tombs of 5 presidents, all with their particular history.
