The Cementerio de Cristobal Colon was founded in 1876 in the Vedado neighbourhood of Havana, Cuba on top of Espada Cemetery. Named for Christopher Columbus, the 140 acre cemetery is noted for its many elaborately sculpted memorials. It is estimated that today the cemetery has more than 500 major mausoleums, chapels, and family vaults.
It is also said to be the third largest cemetery in the world as measured by the amount of marble used in the monuments.
