L’Unione Italiana Cemetery and Cementerio Español

L’Unione Italiana Cemetery and Cementerio Español in Tampa (Ybor City)

These two beautiful parks are nestled in the middle of a dense old once-predominantly Cuban neighborhood. As the name says, however, Cementerio Español was built in 1891 for Spanish immigrants to Tampa’s Ybor City, according to El Centro Español. Three years later, the Italian Club Cemetery moved next door.
