  • El Cementerio Judio: The one-hectare cemetery entrance has yellow columns. A low white wall and a door with a Mogen David. The site adjoins the Catholic cemetery. Tombstones are of carved wood (1930s), cement, and granite (newer graves). A Mogen David-shaped flower bed is the Holocaust memorial. Jews from La Marina, La Criolla and La Elsa may have used this cemetery. Spring and autumn are the best time to visit due to pleasant temperatures. [December 2003]
