This is not your usual cemetery. The grounds are located within the city overlooking the ocean and beaches below. It`s a tranquil and pretty place albeit one where many are buried.

Stopped in here while we were biking to Montecito. Beautiful grounds, a mixture of garden memorials and headstones with a few mausoleums to boot. It's a big space to walk around as we were not allowed to ride our bike. Prime Real Estate alright.

Gracious, serene, old-fashioned luxury graveyard, mausoleums and urn rooms. OK, not everyone appreciates graveyards, but this one has class. Above ground private mausoleums with the family names Firestone, Duryea, Halliburton and the like, hint of a time when Santa Barbara was a favorite destination for...More
