Cemetery of Bilbao (Bilbao, Spain)

Cemetery of Bilbao (Bilbao, Spain)
It is the main cemetery in Bilbao and covers a surface area of 208.000 m2.

About the cemetery

Bilbao Cemetery opened in 1902. In that time converged both the development of a local industrial bourgeoisie and the existence of prestigious Basque architects and sculptors. That period is reflected in the cemetery through a variety of sculptures and architectural elements, which constitute one of the main funerary art groups all over the country, illustrating in an exemplary manner the golden age of Basque art. Its authors are the same that led with their proposals the construction of the new Bilbao in the late nineteenth century and early decades of the twentieth. 

Cemetery of Bilbao, from an historical point of view, shows local social developments of the twentieth century through the visible change in funeral customs, while also giving testimony of various dramatic events the town was through.
