The Cemetery in Campeche
During my last visit to Campeche, I walked to the cemetery south of the centro. It’s fairly easy to find, and a nice walk, though it was very hot. Click here for a map. Entering through the main gate, a wide path of alternating color tiles lead into the cemetery.
Like other Mexican cemeteries I have photographed, you’ll notice that the graves are jumbled and packed together quite closely. Walking through them ends up feeling like a maze, with interesting things around each corner…including a casket, sitting on the ground. It was empty, despite what it looks like!
Here are a few more photos of the cemetery. It was a beautiful place! Please click the images for larger versions.
