THE PANTEON DE BELEN
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

The story of the Panteón de Belén.

In Guadalajara, México, Panteón de Belén is an old cemetery often compared with the Londoner Highgate Cemetery for its architecture, also divided in two areas, but smaller in size, housing interesting flora, fauna, and haunts.

Opened in 1848, the cemetery was part of the Hospital de Belén inaugurated in 1793. As a cemetery, the Panteón de Belén was closed in 1896, but haunted stories survive even today, conducting night tours for those who dare to meet with the dead.

One of the most famous haunts is the vampire that stalked locals for a long time, the legend says that small animals were drained completely of their blood, followed by newborns and later adult people began to feel weak finding the marks of the vampire on their necks.

At night, people prayed and lived in fear until a group of people tracked down the Vampire whose tomb was discovered at Panteón Belén. People sacrificed the vampire with a wooden stake through his heart and then secured the tomb with concrete slabs.

Paranormal researchers and other people who visit the cemetery during daylight hours have recorded ghost sightings. At Belén, there is also a centennial tree, but here the body of a boy was found hanged out.

Legends say that he was a cancer patient of the old Hospital. The boy's suffering was uncontrollable, but his mother thought that a picture of a saint in his son’s hand would relieve the pain.

The boy cursed the pictured and asked his mother to leave him alone. After she went away, the boy left the hospital and hung himself in the cemetery's tree. Since then, the tree’s shadow projects the figure of the boy hanging out of its branches.

Perhaps the most scary haunt in Panteón Belén is a monk that suddenly appears in the corridors leading to the crematory area and whose apparitions has been recorded by several researchers of the paranormal phenomena in Argentina and México.
