The English Cemetery in Malaga has an interesting story

The English Cemetery lies on a hillside very near the historic centre of Malaga. More than 1000 people are buried within its 8,000 square metres; the majority, including its founder, are British but there are also Spanish and Americans, Danes and Swedes among other nationalities. Originally an isolated plot of land on the road to Velez, today the cemetery is surrounded by blocks of apartments and the hustle and bustle of a modern city, but it still retains a sense of peace. If you wander along the terraces you will come across simple headstones, ornate vaults and touching epitaphs, all providing a fascinating insight into life and death in this unique part of Andalucia.
