Death in the Afternoon: The Round Cemetery of Sayalonga, east of Malaga.

  • I love discovering and exploring burial sites wherever I am in the world, not because of any morbid fascination with death, but in the expectation of visually recording their beauty, history and existence. 

    To me, cemeteries are places where art, history and world religion meet. 

    The only round cemetery in Spain can be found in Sayalonga, a typical whitewashed village some 40 kilometres east of the city of Málaga and 9 kilometres from the coast, deep in the heart of the Axarquía region. 

    If you haven't visited - you should!
