The cemetery was declared museum in 1998 and Cultural Heritage of the Nation in 1999 thanks to its funeral art and rich architecture, and to the historical and artistic content of its mausoleums. It holds the remains of important artists, businessmen, industrialists, and politicians. Today San Pedro Cemetery is a living museum where anyone can conjure up Medellín’s remote or immediate past. A sanctuary where the dead are honored with simple or lavish testimonials; a space for reflection. A place where history never dies.
