Do you have memories of the old city cemetery along Hayes Street beside Xavier University? Prominent and ordinary citizens of CDO were laid to rest here until its transfer to much bigger area in Bolonsiri, Camaman-an. Kagay-anons back then held funeral procession for their dearly departed from Saint Augustine Cathedral via Dolores Street leading to the cemetery. Thus the Spanish name Dolores, or Sorrows.
