Mausoleums in the Christopher Columbus Cemetery

There were many large expensive memorials in the 140 acre Cementerio de Cristobal Colón.  The link to a six-year-old story in the Toronto Star provides interesting background.

      It was very interesting: the different types of memorials, the tributes to famous people and their life stories (we had a guide for 20 minutes but you can get one for longer), the huge size, the lovely grounds.
