History

Collserola is a typically Mediterranean cemetery with a diagonal layout made up of three or four blocks of niches which are predominately five storeys high. One of the main characteristics of this cemetery is the abundance of vegetation. On entering, and throughout the whole site, we are reminded of the fact that we are in a nature reserve.

The cemetery is divided into 18 plots and is the prototype of the modern cemetery, designed to be reached by car. The site is representative of the period in which it was designed, leaving the ostentation of grand mausoleums for other cemeteries in the city. This is a functional cemetery where simply decorated niches are the order of the day.

By the end of the 1960s the Montjuïc Cemetery had reached full capacity. Given that the city’s boundaries were limited by the Collserola mountain range and the sea, the municipal area could no longer be expanded. A new cemetery was therefore built in Barcelona’s green lung.

The new cemetery was opened on 27 June 1972 in a forest area measuring over 444 acres on the foothills of the Collserola mountain range between the municipal boundaries of Barcelona, Cerdanyola and Montcada i Reixach.
