The project was approved on May 6, 1814 and contruction started during the 4th quarter of that same year. It was later on enlarged and opened to the public before its completion. The first burials were done in the year 1820 even if the cemetery was not yet fully completed due to the tragic deaths brought about by a cholera epidemic, making it as the first extramural cemetery.
