Rotund of Illustrious People (and San Fernando Museum-Cemetary)

No, we are not morbid! It has been said that you can judge a nation by the way it treats its heroes.  That is why we include this tour in our repertoire.  You will see that the two city cemeteries we have selected for this visit show the beauty, respect and artistic innovation with which Mexico honors its deceased.

The San Fernando Museum-Cemetery (nestled downtown) was considered the most elegant place to be laid to rest at the end of the 19th century.  Here we will find important political and historical figures of that epoch, including national hero President Benito Juarez.

The Rotund of Illustrious People actually looks more like a sculpture garden than a cemetery!  Here Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Amado Nervo and many other important Mexican artists, scientists, composers, politicians and Nobel Prize Winners are laid to rest, their graves reflecting their personalities with elaborate funeral sculptures!  Join us for an unusual morning out.  You won’t forget this tour!
