Este cemitrio localiza-se entre as aldeias de Salamansa e Praia do Norte (Norte Baa), na ilha de So Vicente, Cabo Verde. Tal como numa telenovela brasileira (O Bem-amado), este cemitrio esteve muitos anos sem ser "inaugurado" por falta de defuntos para serem sepultados. At se brincava dizendo que teriam que ser transferidos para aqui defuntos do cemitrio do Mindelo.
