All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day are busy days for cemeteries in Spain
The Adeje council have been busy making sure the municipal cemetery is ready for the many extra visitors expected over the coming days, with November 1st and 2nd marking All Saint’s Day and All Souls’ Day respectively. These are celebrated national (and internationally) with extra masses, and families taking time to visit the cemeteries where loved ones have been laid to rest.
The Adeje cemetery will be open to the public today and tomorrow from 8am to 6pm and on November 1st and 2nd from 8am to 8pm. In preparation for the visits the council have been working to make sure the cemetery is in top condition for families who will visit this week, cleaning, painting, planting new flowers in the different patios, etc.
The councillor with responsibility for the area, Esther Rivero Vargas, commented, “these are important days for the public, when we pay respect to those who have gone before us, and we know it’s essential that the cemetery is in top condition for those families who will be visiting, as it’s a very relevant date for them”. She added that the goal was always to make the place “one of tranquillity and harmony”.
