About

Unique cemetery features

Unique features at Cementerio La PiedadCementerio La Piedad features a number of unique cemetery features that help to create a beautiful final resting place. At the cemetery entrance, you'll find a majestic mural created by international sculptor Elvira Cova. Finished in marble and concrete, it is one of the largest sculptures in the world.

Highlighted at the cemetery's main wall is another mural, "The Value of Sacrifice," which was created by one of our very own staff members, Ulises Vázquez Sotero, in 2006.

Our chapel

The cemetery's chapel has an architecturally modern appearance, faces the Plaza de Duelo and is surrounded by serene gardens that invite meditation and reflection. In addition to holding funeral services for the families we serve, this chapel is also the location of our Mother's Day, Father's Day and All Souls' Day masses. Each of these events draws more than 300 people to Cementerio La Piedad.

Honoring veterans

Our Veteran Memorial Garden is a beautiful tribute to those who have served, where veterans are honored and remembered. We also hold a special annual ceremony on Memorial Day with the support and participation of the American Legion of Ponce.

At Cementerio La Piedad, we understand that the loss of a loved one is a difficult experience and are committed to providing compassionate, professional and personal service. If you need immediate assistance, our knowledgeable and helpful staff is here to help.
