Paseo de las Ánimas

It should be remembered that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the festival de las Ánimas did not take place for two years, which was instituted in 2008, making it a tradition.

One of the most awaited events of this Festival that encompasses several activities, is the Paseo de las Ánimas that recreates the route that the souls would have to travel in those days according to the Mérida of ancient times.

It takes place from the General Cemetery (“Cementerio General”) to the Arch of San Juan, as is tradition, celebrating the values and customs of the people of Mérida and Yucatán, and this year it will take place on Friday, October 28th.
