Cementerio Municipal de Bahía Blanca

I tried to get in other days but I never manged to arrive before it closed.
So today I was an early bird and got my reward.

The main gate is amazing:

The morning was lovely sunny and warm and it was overly quiet. Some sections were tended with exquisite detail but others were very neglected. Open graves, crypts and that. I got inside some but there wasn’t enough light to take a meaningful picture.

A couple of caretakers / gardeners looked at me funny when emerging from crypts but other than that they made no attempt to stop me.
Some of the crypts were really creepy:

On others the light through the stained glass windows made a spectacular display of beauty:

There’s a big building housing four floors of coffins and a couple of offices. Some sort of air duct runs all over it from the underground up to the roof. Most of the windows allow ample view of the cemetery:


On one of the walls there’s a painting of Jesus, just a tad grotesque:

After this fruitful morning I returned to the hotel for a bit of food and work.
