The grave of Balbino Giner by laroque

The grave of Balbino Giner

Collioure old cemetery

Looking him up on Wikipedia, it seems his son was also an artist, and so perhaps it was he who created this monument.
A wonderful capture! I love the stone carving.

It seems so much better than grey traditional

Special tomb, are there any more in this old cemetery?

We visited Collioure a few years ago, and absolutely loved it, we went quite late in the season but it was still warm. We went by train.

Fantastic artwork for a grave, so unusual.

@busylady It is best to visit out of season, we never go there at all in July & August, or on Sundays between May and October. When it's crowded like that, probably the train is the best way to arrive. And on a sunny day on a south-facing terrace, you can eat lunch outside even in December & January.

@borof Yes, but I need to go back when the light is better.

Very cool find!

@laroque I think it may have been October or even early November when we were there. I just wished some moer of the arty places had been open.
