Cultural tour: 'The City of the Dead, history and traditions at Mazarrón Cemetery' Saturday, 23rd June at 10 a.m. -English-

On June 5, 1900, at 6.30 a.m. the Old "Camposanto Eclesial" (churchyard) of Mazarrón was closed, and simultaneously, to the commissioning of the municipal cemetery. Today marks the 118th anniversary of this public space, still in operation, lifted/builded to handle the health standards imposed by the change of the century and also, by the increase of the mortality.

With a different approach and for its dissemination, this cultural tour will bring to neighbors and visitors closer to a chapter of recent history of Mazarrón, which had its origins in the golden age of the mining industry. Some aspects about the symbolism related to death will be explained; details about some of the relevant figures who rest in this sacred place and also about outstanding elements of funerary architecture will be disclosed.

Lasts approximately: 1 hour. English tour at 10 a.m.

Mandatory: Water and appropriate footwear for walking. Cap and sunscreen advisable.

Required own car.

Meeting point will be communicated once registered.
