Cemeteries. [insert eerie music]
The why the hell do I find myself visiting them every chance that I get? We have a collection of photos guest posted by Eric and Shauna during their visit to the Necropolis in Havana, Cuba, and a few from the cemetery in Xela, Guatemala.
What once freaked me out as a kid is now absolutely fascinating. No lingering spooky ghostly feelings – just silence… and art. This unlikely spot has some of the most beautiful art pieces I’ve seen in my live. It is quite the way to go out – seriously. Sometime dies and then this massive, narcissistic monument goes up designed by sculptors, artists, and architects.
While I personally may not be a stout, religious person, doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy the delicate and detailed stained glass that I found made in La Recoleta much different than the rest. Not only where there mainly crypts with the coffins in sight, but the stained glass made every tomb look like a small cathedral.
Sure, you can go and see Evita’s grave in the Duarte tomb, but there is so much more to this spot than that. Wander around. You will be surprised at what small details you will come across.
