Flowers, Angels and Epitaphs in Havana’s Colon Cemetery


Photo Feature by Ernesto Gonzalez Diaz

HAVANA TIMES – Colon, the largest and most emblematic of Havana’s cemeteries, has innumerable mausoleums and sculptures that are true works of art.

But in this work what we want to highlight are some of the epitaphs present in their funeral niches, and the flowers that residents in this city put daily to their dead as a sign of tribute and remembrance.

On the other hand, we wanted to show some of the sculptures that make up the landscape of this necropolis, which, as has been said on other occasions, is one of the largest and most beautiful Latin cemeteries.
