DETAILS

Stunning, full-color map of Montjuïc Cemetery in Barcelona, signed by its principal architect, Leandro Albareda. It was published the same year the city of Barcelona opened this area as its main cemetery, supplanting the older cemetery at Poblenou in the east. The location was chosen away from the growing city, on the steep slopes of Monjuïc which give the cemetery its special character, with winding paths and terraced niches looking seawards over the harbor.

Many notable people are interned there, including Joan Miró.
