Most Beautiful Cemeteries in the World
Today we’ll present some of the most beautiful cemeteries in the world.
Yes, we know. Visiting a cemetery can be a morbid way to spend your time. It’s not quite like you visit a beach or something else.
The cemeteries from the past were like that.
Nowadays, many final resting places offer a relaxing feeling to tourists.
Some of these even became landmarks. And they are must-see sites!
Let’s get straight to business!
10Xoxocotlan Cemetery, Oaxaca, Mexico
We begin our list with Xoxocotlan Cemetery.
Located in Oaxaca, Mexico, Xoxocotlan Cemetery dates back to the 1500s and is truly one beautiful cemetery.
And the best time to visit it is during the Day of the Dead. On the night of October 31, Mexican people believe that the spirits of the dead come back to visit the living.
The whole cemetery is embellished with lots of colorful flowers and candles, creating a festive atmosphere.
The people, of course, bring picnics, eating and drinking in their loved ones’ honor.
If you have the opportunity, try ‘mescal’. It’s a liquor made from the agave cactus and it’s very tasteful.
