Cemeteries don’t often conjure up thoughts of beauty. Most are somber environments filled with gray tombstones commemorating a person’s time on Earth. But in Mexico, cemeteries don’t only honor the dead — they’re also a celebration of the culture in which those people lived. These beautiful cemeteries are proof that no matter what tragedy we face, the human spirit will not only endure, but thrive.
As 2016 comes to a close, now is the perfect time to reflect on those we lost this year, but also a chance to celebrate the joy they brought to our lives. Let’s look at some of the most beautiful cemeteries found in Mexico.
