Son Sang Cemetery

What can Sóller offer you
scroll down

The Son Sang Cemetery of Sóller is in a way like a garden, full of plants and flowers, with statues made by well-known artists and with a great plastic value.

It is an authentic funeral sculpture museum of modernist style with an important symbolic repertoire. The lands were blessed in 1814 but were not systematically used until 1841. Located on a hill, from where you can contemplate a privileged view of Sóller, it is considered one of the most beautiful and enigmatic cemeteries of Mallorca. It is a place that inspires a lot of romanticism and reminds you of the typical beautiful European cemetery where people travel through their halls and walk among the tombs.

Inside the site we find a considerable repertoire of tombs, pantheons and funerary monuments, of different types, among which we can highlight modernist style sets with floral details, symbols and enigmatic figures that give an air of mystery to the whole funeral ensemble. The modernist aesthetic of the cemetery reflects the idea of ​​total art in which modernist artists aspired.

The inscriptions of the graves in Catalan, Spanish and French witness the migratory movements that the town has experienced since the end of the nineteenth century, in addition to the desire of the Sollerenses to return to the land where they were born for their eternal rest.

The original nucleus of the cemetery underwent three extensions in 1894, in 1913 and 1989 respectively, clearly identifiable in the different levels in which the cemetery is distributed.
