Xela Cemetary

I visited the Xela cemetary last time I was here and I think I posted pictures as well. But I had to post a few more because I just find the place so fascinating. With all the colours. The large family tombs that look more like small houses. The mix of fresh and dying flowers. And the views of Santa Maria. It is just so inspiring for photos

At the entrance of the cemetary there is a sign hanging that says Por el recuerdo del vivo, hace la vida de los muertos or something like that as I am going on memory. It means (loosely) by the memories of the living the dead live on. This sentiment can certainly be felt as you walk about the grounds. A sense of reverence.

Here are the rest of my photos.
