Know Before You Go
A few steps from the chapel is the empty niche where Macedonio Alcalá was once buried. On his deathbed, he composed the waltz "God Never Dies," one of the most popular songs of the Day of the Dead in Mexico. Today, his remains are lost forever, just like the chapel project.
The cemetery opens at 7 a.m. The best time to visit the cemetery is the night of the Day of the Dead, when the cemetery and niches are only lit with candles and flowers.
