The construction of Paco Cemetery or Cementerio General de Paco began in 1814 but a cholera epidemic prompted the use of the cemetery in 1820. The remains of Jose Rizal were initially interred in Paco Cemetery after his execution in Bagumbayan (now Luneta) in 1896 and exhumed in 1898. In 1966, Paco Cemetery was converted into a national park. Its niches were emptied since the cemetery would no longer be used as a burial ground. Marielle Medina, Inquirer Research
