Panteón de Belen, or Santa Paula Cemetery, was built to meet the need for more burial spots for victims of the epidemics, primarily cholera. Perhaps due to this tragic origin, the cemetery is shrouded in myths and tales of ghosts roaming the grounds.
Local lore includes the legends of the Pirate, the Lovers, the Monk, the Nun, the Vampire Tree, the Child Afraid of the Dark, and more. People have claimed to see these deceased residents haunting the graveyard over the years. The cemetery now offers night tours of the grounds, functioning as a sort of museum of the macabre.
