SAID to have been designed so the dead would not turn their backs on each other, it is the only round cemetery in Spain.

Now locals in Sayalonga near Competa, hope that their unusual dead centre, built in 1840, is to be promoted better as a tourist attraction.

A visitor centre is now open and a local historian is urging the authorities to designate it a BIC, or site of specific cultural interest.
