Touring Graveyards on Google Street View

    I've found that Google Street View is usually super limited when it comes to interesting sites you can explore, but there are some graveyards you can walk around in to pass a boring hour at work or school. If you've found any that I might've missed, or have interesting screenshots or history, feel free to share them here!

     

    Cementario de la Recoleta

    ( Junín 1760, 1113 Buenos Aires, Argentina )

     

    Highgate Cemetery

    ( Swain's Ln, London N6 6PJ, United Kingdom )

     

    Père Lachaise Cemetery

    ( 16 Rue du Repos, 75020 Paris, France )

     

    Sedlec Ossuary

    ( Zámecká, 284 03 Kutná Hora, Czech Republic )

    Pictured below, though not visible from Street View, the main chapel houses a chandelier made of human bones.

    St. Louis Cemetery No.1

    ( New Orleans, LA 70112 )

    Due to flooding, the graves in this New Orleans cemetery are buried above ground. This cemetery is also the burial grounds of a Voodoo queen. I was unable to find her grave in Street View, but you're more than welcome to look for it and post a screenshot if you see it.

     

    Honorable Mentions

    Cemeteries that you can't explore, but are worth mentioning.

     

    Waterside Cemetery

    ( Marblehead, MA 01945 )

     

     

    Boothill Cemetary

    ( Tombstone, AZ 85638 )

     

     

    Cemetaries in Salem, Massachusetts

    I counted up to seven cemetaries in Salem. You can't explore any of them from at home, but they're worth mentioning due to Salem's history.

     

    (St. Mary Cemetery, conveniently located on Crescent Avenue.)

     

    Edgar Allen Poe's Grave

    ( 515 W Fayette St, Baltimore, MD 21201 )

    You're better off looking up a picture of Poe's grave on Google Images or visiting it in person, but the architecture of the surrounding building is beautiful nonetheless!

    That's Amazing!!

    I've explored a lot via Google Earth, but never thought of trying Cemeteries.

    Thank you for sharing!

    I really want to go to Highgate cemetery always, it’s finding the right person to go with either someone who has the same passion or someone I hate and can bury them inside :D
