Location Information

The main entrance to this large cemetery is at the junction of Avenida Zapata and 30th Calle (Street) The remains of the casualties are located in the mausoleum of the Anglo-American Welfare Association, with the names inscribed on the central memorial which also forms the entrance to the underground ossuary. From the main entrance follow the central avenue past the large chapel, which is constructed on the central area of a roundabout, and on past the next major junction also marked by a roundabout. The Anglo American mausoleum is some 50 metres beyond that junction on the right hand side, and the name of the Association is inscribed on the front of the mausoleum structure.

The cemetery is now a tourist attraction in Havana and features on many guided tours.
