The Cemetery of Colours
It is the second municipal cemetery of Dumbría and is next to the municipal funeral parlour. The cemetery is in the neoplasticist style and breaks away from the traditional, idea of a sombre, grey place of rest. It is commonly known by locals as the Cemetery of Colours.
It is the most striking cemetery on the Costa da Morte. Construction work finished on the cemetery in 2012. It is the work of architect RosanaPichel who also designed the pilgrims hostel in O Cunco and other municipal buildings.
It can be described as a neoplastisist cemetery, an alternative name for the de Stijl movement started by Piet Mondrian whose paintings were full of horizontal and vertical lines and bright colours filling certain segments. The roof of the building is also novel as it tries to imitate, in a certain way, the surrounding trees of Estimán.
