He was a footballer like no other, and his final resting place will be extraordinary, too: a large replica stadium with artificial turf inside the world’s tallest cemetery.

After his death last week at age 82, the Brazilian football great’s funeral was held Tuesday in the Memorial Ecumenical Cemetery, a veritable high-rise that holds the Guinness World Record for the tallest cemetery on earth.

This cemetery is located in Santos, the southeastern port city where ‘The King’ spent most of his storied career, and features a 24-hour restaurant, a chapel, an automobile museum, and a small fish pond.

Located on the first floor, Pele’s mausoleum will be decorated like a football stadium, with his embalmed body displayed in a coffin surrounded by gilded images from his glory days.
