Lanquin Cemetery Aug 09, 2012
Lanquin cemetery is fairly interesting to see and it is close to the center of the town so it is easy to walk around and end up there. Good concrete road leads up the steep hill to the cemetery’s little chapel which was close when I was there. From outside chapel is very bare and it is probably used just to present the body. Most of the graves are on uneven hillside, and many of them are empty gray concrete boxes. Older graves are colorful and clean with lots of flowers, but still very plane. From the cemetery hill there is a nice view to the surrounding area and the city. I was expecting a bit more cultural diversity in the area that has majority practicing Maya traditionalist, but the difference is probably in the rituals.
