In Cusco, in the district of Santiago lies the cemetery of Almudena. With the valuable contribution of great professionals, some months ago this museum and tourist attraction was opened.

The cemetery museum and heritage site Almudena is nowadays considered a tourist attraction for local and foreign tourists. For some it may be mysterious or unattractive, however visiting a cemetery means much more than walking through a place where souls rest between dreams, t means to know a sleeping past. You can discover illustrious personages and find legendary histories where urban legends are interwoven and embodied in monuments and sculptures that form part of a valuable heritage.
