Discover the unusual in this private tour
Last November 1st, on All Saints Day, four visitors requested a walk around Palma. Being a holiday with just about everything closed, we joined some 25, 000 souls who visited Palma's cemetery that day. It worked out so well, I've decided to offer the tour to you. Far from being morbid, the cemetery is filled with stories about stunning victories and heart-wrenching tragedies, a different way to view the culture and history of the island. It's also a sculpture garden of intricately crafted stone tombs, angels and elaborate architecture where Modernism abounds.
Get to know some of its occupants like the sixth richest man in the world, a New Zealand beauty called the 'Garbo of the Skies', or a world famous opera singer. Learn why a young Royal Air Force sargeant and sixty-six Italian sailors and aviators are buried here. Hear about the characters and their victims who participated in some of the darkest moments of Spanish 20th century history.
