Snapshots: Sculpture in Barcelona’s Cementiri de l’Est


Share 

Established in 1773, this cemetery was originally placed outside the eastern city limits for hygiene reasons. Generations of interesting statues fill the various nooks and crannies here. 

At rest...

 

While many of the carvings (and mausoleums) are now vandalized and broken, a few statues remain intact. This is one of them.
