Panteón Inglés (British Cementery of Real del Monte)

Mineral del Monte / Real del Monte

The Panteón Inglés de Real del Monte (British Cemetery of Real del Monte) holds a ghostly atmosphere around it. This site was built in 1851 on the top of a hill near the town by the Englishman Thomas Straffon, who at that time was a clerk for the mines in the area.

Thus, in the middle of a forest of oyameles, the place guards the remains of English miners. The first tomb dates from 1834 and many of the souls that rest there are from people that lost their lives because they did not have the necessary precautions inside the mines.

There are 750 tombs that are in the Panteón Inglés (British Cemetery), all of them of workers coming form the United Kingdom on they free will, except that of the clown Richard Bell, who due to his offensive humor for the British people was exiled from England.

His last wish was that when he was buried he should not turn his back on Mexico. This site was appointed Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2013.
