Lucbuan Cemetery (Cuyo, Palawan)

1

I was amazed when I saw this place - a small cemetery just above the beach front. A very solemn and quiet place, ideal place to, well, talk to dead relatives. Some of the crosses are old and have the designs of the late 18th century, those who were buried here probably were rich Spanish descendants who stayed after the Philippines regained its freedom from Spain early 1900s. Other crosses are makeshift from woods and lumber, probably owned by the locals.
