When we arrived in Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic one of the features we found fascinating was the local cemtery. We mentioned it initially/briefly in an article about Las Terrenas Beach then went on to document it more from the interior. We are happy to report that many murals have been added to the exterior and appear to have been completed by different artists. We welcome any help identifying the artists responsible and scenes depicted in the murals. We hope people will have their days brightened they way ours is when we see them. We would love to attribute these murals so that the artists can benefit please feel free to contact us with this information. Click on any image to view it larger.
