Chichi graveyard Aug 01, 2012
Chichicastenango Graveyard is a colorful collection of the family tombs on the top of the hill. It is used by locals as a shortcut, and there is always someone there hurrying to the city or going back home. There is variety of the tomb styles from pyramids to baroque to humble rounded covers and wall full of graves. When I was looking for the hostel, receptionist took me to the higher floor and my room looked towards the graveyard. It looked so interesting that I had to stay there for a bit longer. By the style of the family tombs, this area of the country is wealthy. Most of the graves are marked to be Christian, but there is more and more people of the indigenous faith according to dates on the stones.
Look from the hostel
