Malaga’s English Cemetery to be named cultural heritage site

THE English Cemetery in Malaga is finally to be awarded cultural heritage status.

The burial ground, built by Britons in 1831, was the first resting place in Spain for Protestants and counts author Gerald Brenan and freedom fighter Robert Boyd among its residents.

In 2006 a foundation was created to fight for the site to be maintained, and be officially recognised.

After 16 months of paperwork, the Junta’s culture bosses have finally agreed for the monument to join the Alcazaba and the old market building on the list of Malaga’s cultural heritage sites.
