A guided tour through one of the oldest cemeteries in the city, full of stories and legends from beyond the grave, including a vampire. Notorious characters lie in this cemetery, full of ancient and beautiful family pantheons.

I can't believe they charge to enter a cemetery! Also, their hours are very inconvenient and they have stopped the maintenance of this once beautiful cemetery. So sad and disappointing!
