A Little Bit of Egypt

Pyramid by Luna McCarthy

I have mentioned before that I love cemeteries and one reason is the unique architecture that is built in cemeteries around the world. One thing however, that you do not expect to see is an Egyptian pyramid in the middle of a cemetery in Guatemala. I do not know the story of the reason for the pyramid, but there are scaled replicas of other buildings as well, The Municipal Theatre among others. There are two pyramids located in the Calvario Cemetery, as you walk along the main path you will see this one; the other is located diagonally behind it.
