Granary Burying Ground, Boston
The towering Egyptian Revival gate that marks the entryway is a work of art in its own right. Open daily, the Granary Burying Ground has excellent signage to point out the most famous -- and infamous--graves.
Mount Pleasant, Toronto
If you're not used to seeing cemeteries filled with baby strollers and joggers, brace yourself before visiting Mount Pleasant. It's best to regard it as a public park that happens to have a lot of permanent residents.
St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, New Orleans
Its whitewashed crypts, some topped with mournful statues and surrounded by wrought-iron gates, have a ghostly beauty that has been captured on film, most famously in "Easy Rider."
Highgate Cemetery, London
Situated on 37 acres in North London, Highgate is as almost much a nature reserve as it is a historic resting place. Wild as a classic English garden, it features trees,shrubs and flowers growing without human intervention, and they provide cover to Highgate's many living inhabitants, which include foxes.
This is the ultimate Who's Who of graveyards. It was established by Napoleon himself in 1804, with the emperor declaring,"Every citizen has the right to be buried regardless of race or religion."
Old Jewish Cemetery, Prague
There was nowhere to go but up, and so centuries of tombs and monuments lie buried inside as more earth was brought in. There are some 12,000 tombstones at the top, though thousands more are buried here.
La Recoleta, Buenos Aires
In Argentina's capital city, Recoleta is considered a chief attraction. Walled off from the tony neighborhood it inhabits, it's effectively a city-within-the-city, founded in 1822 and filled with elaborately carved tombs and fine Italian statuary.
Cementerio General, Santiago
這個墓園有201公頃，其中以許多優雅的街道和大道分界，墓本身也特別巨大，不過，都是為了襯托Mayan temples、Venetian palazzos和其他巨型建築物
Spread over 210 acres, and divided into elegant streets and boulevards, the Cementerio General has massive tombs designed to resemble Mayan temples, Venetian palazzos and other grand structures — they're so huge, you might start to wonder whether any living family members could be inside, too.
Mount of Olives, Jerusalem
The Jewish cemetery contains biblical kings as well as more modern Israeli leaders such as Menahem Begin, but there are also Christian and Muslim burial grounds here. Wherever you stand on the mount, it offers a uniquely beautiful view of ancient, walled Jerusalem.
