Resting on the Montjuïc hill, Cementerio de Montjuïc is a huge cemetery that has been housing the dead since 1883. One of the quieter places in Barcelona, it initially had four sections wherein the Catholics, Protestants, non-Christians and others were buried respectively. Today, many celebrated personalities like the artist Joan Miró, dancer Carmen Amaya and poet/priest Jacint Verdaguer and Generalitat presidents Lluis Companys and Francesc Macià rest here. Stretching across the south-west corner of the hill, the cemetery also houses a memorial park that commemorates the Civil War victims who were buried here too.
