The English Cemetery of Malaga

23Jul

On the blog of Hotel Angela we always try to encourage you to discover the most beautiful spots of Malaga, so today we would like to recommend you visit the unique English cemetery.

This historical cemetery is in Malaga city centre in an area known as La Malagueta. This is the first protestant cemetery in the Iberian Peninsula.

It opened in 1831 due to the problems that back in the day there were to bury the big English colony that lived in Malaga, as up until then in Malaga non catholics were buried by the beach under torch lights.

William Mark (British consul in 1821), was present in these burials so we he did all he could to find a place where the members of his community could get buried with dignity. In 1829 the local authorities of Malaga finally accepted his request and gave him a piece of land that back in the day was in the outskirts of the city.

In this cemetery we can find many important English people in Malaga as they helped in the development of the city. Among them are British author and hispanist Gerald Brennan or British economist Marjorie Grice-Hutchinson.

For 175 years the cemetery was run by British consuls, thanks to a small contribution from the English government. When this contribution stopped, the cemetery got abandoned, until 1990 when Consul Bruce McIntyre started managing it and created a conservation fund.

The English cemetery of Malaga got declared to be a site of Cultural Interest in 2012, and it is registered in the Association of important cemeteries in Europe for its artistic, literary and botanic value.

If right now you are on holiday at Hotel Angela and you would like to visit it we recommend you to include it in your list of interesting places to visit in Malaga.

Enjoy Malaga city and have fun exploring all the great places that can be seen there!
