Cementerio - Monument Hanga Roa - Chile

Often overlooked, the cemetery is definitely worth visiting during a coastal wander. Islanders believed in death the soul is returned to the ocean. Accordingly, graves face inland, so that grieving relatives can gaze over the Pacific to view their loved ones. Gravestones are small and traditional, with a mass of wooden crosses dotting the site. Some graves are unmarked in spite of the fact that the cemetery was still accepting burials until recently.
