Poble Sec, Barcelona
We don’t understand death, so we find or look for ways to preserve ourselves and others.
We create sanctuaries for those who graced us with their presence or even for those who harmed us. While visiting this particular cemetery in Barcelona, I learned that the rich wanted to be buried separately from the poor. Not even in death are we equal.
El Poble Sec Cemetery
When I was little, I used to go to the cemetery every Sunday. It was important for my family to go, especially for my grandmother. She went to visit her son, she brought him flowers. She prayed. Maybe, she wanted to make sure he knew how much she missed him.
