The cemetery of Segovia is a privileged place in our history. Visiting their graves allows us to trace the past of those who preceded us and thus know the traces that attest to their existence. In this purpose the Art offers incredible expressive resources because it allows to speak of the Beyond with beautiful forms and offers us a certain sociocultural reality that recognizes the social emotionality through the funerary language. The symbolic language, its architecture, the landscape, the botany, emotive epitaphs, curiosities, illustrious figures or mausoleums offer us an important cultural, patrimonial and tourist resource that allows us to approach the fingerprints of our ancestors, a kind of DNA that writes the life of people and their popular traditions since death.
