Christopher Columbus Burial Site

Christopher Columbus at Rest

I was amazed at the beautiful burial memorial to Columbus in the Cathedral in Seville. His bones are in the coffin carried by four elegant figures representing Spain. In schools in the US, Columbus is generally tied to Italy, not Spain. Yet he is honored throughout Spain, almost as a native son.

Dancing with Diaghilev

Russian Sergei Diaghilev, ballet impresario and founder of the Ballets Russes, is buried on the island of San Michele, Venice’s cemetery. Ballet dancers often leave a spare pair of used toe shoes placed on his grave stone.
