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.
