Search Ciutadella-Cementeri Vell:

The name over the entrance is "Cementerio Municipal" but in 1993, a new municipal cemetery was established approximately 2 km away and this one is listed as "Cementeri Vell" on maps to differentiate old from new.

City is spelled "Ciutadella" in Spanish but is listed as "Ciudadela" in English on the site.

Construction was begun in 1834 with blessing by the church in 1838. A semicircle extension was attached in 1876 to increase capacity.

The facade was built between 1922 and 1923 and the last extension was done to the opposite side in the 1950's.

While this is still an active cemetery, in 1993, a new cemetery was constructed further outside of the city and is called "Ciutadella - Cementeri Nou" I've listed it with the city name in front to aid in differentiating it from all the other Cementeri on the site.
