Me too. Our cemiteries are a lot different from yours or the american ones. When you visit a portuguese cemitery you get the felling that you are seing everyone's coffins because every grave has a coffin volum, emerging from the floor made of stone + a catholic cross and most times pictures of the deads.

I'll try to get you some pictures.
