Reus cemetery

On the main door of Reus cemetery there is a sculpture of god Cronus winged, symbol of time with a scythe, sign of the death. This cemetery was founded in 1871 and was the first non religious cemetery of Spain. In 1939, after the civil war, the sculture was retired because authorities declared the cementery catholic. When spain was democratic again, people of Reus returned  to his place the representation of Cronus.
