Bats in the Necropolis

The Bacardi family may have fled Cuba during the revolution, taking their rum making ways with them, but their plot at The Necropolis Cristóbal Colón in Havana remains an impressive collection of mausoleum, tombs and stone carved statues. All bound together by their trademark bat icons on the surrounding fence posts.

    • Thanks John! The Necropolis is stunning with it’s artwork and massive in scope. A groundskeeper took me around to some of the highlights…with a lot left for next time. A million frames of beauty amongst the decay.
