Exploring Madrid’s city of the dead

7 March 2017

Over five million people are buried, stacked and stored as ashes in Madridโ€™s biggest graveyard. La Almudenaโ€™s size and layout make it feel like more of a city than a cemetery: it has a historic centre, named streets, and neighbourhoods with different characters. Youโ€™ll find upmarket areas with mansions for the rich and famous, detached houses, workersโ€™ apartment blocks, the poor neglected parts of the city and, last but not least, an anarchist squat.
