Great history with awesome tour guides to explain it
sty 2020
I would make this a stop in your adventures in Guadalajara. Short uber ride from the central plaza. Its not expensive, however please pay the extra fee that they charge to take pictures. It's worth every penny.

Learn about the legends of the city. The Vampire, Nachito and the architect that built the cemetery. Each one has a great story. The tour guide was knowledgeable and approachable. We took the last tour of the day which is at 3pm. Get there on time.

Enjoy

A Complete Disappointment
lis 2019
My wife and I visited on Dia de los Muertos. We were hopping to see a historical graveyard perhaps decked out for the occasion. Nope, it was decorated for a Halloween ghost type after dark horror tour. That would not of been so bad in itself if the tour they give is of decent quality. First off, you must be part of a tour to enter the graveyard. Second is the tour groups are HUGE. There is not an English tour offered. Once again not a deal breaker, but the grave yard is small and you stand with the group in one spot looking at one thing for about 20 minutes while the guide pratters on. Then to the next stop where you might have moved maybe 50 feet before he talks and talks and talks and talks. There are no written explanations, even if in Spanish I can still get the gist of what is written and look up a few words to clarify if need be. You are not allowed to leave your group and look around on your own, but my wife and I managed to disappear around a corner and do that. Then we looked at the graves on our own at our leisure and got more out of our visit. Also at 76 pesos and extra if you want to take photos it is very expensive for what you actually see. Unless you are fluent in Spanish do not waste your time or your money. Give this one a pass.

Beautiful architecture
paź 2019
My great-great-grandfather is buried here but that's not why I chose to take a tour here. The graves are gorgeous even in their decay and are historically important. There is also the old vampire tree as well as the architecture of the columns. I found this through Atlas Obscura and I highly recommend it. It was 23 pesos to get in or 75 if you want to take photos. You really want to take photos there, I promise you. I don't know if they offer tours in English but you can't go in without the guide, so even if you don't understand it's worth it to see it inside! The money helps preserve the cemetery.

Night tour if you dare!
cze 2019 • Dla rodziny
Spooky night tour given at 11pm. Have pesos ready because they don’t take card or American money. Guide was great at adding to the already creepy tour at night. I won’t give away the rest. Check it out!

Great place, but tours need some work!
kwi 2019 • Dla rodziny
In from NYC, I took my wife's family who are local to Guadalajara last night. We were all really excited. I love history, great stories, and visiting attractions such as these. A cemetery can tell you a lot about a culture, and this one in particular is interesting because of its age, as well as its proximity to an old hospital, medical school, autopsy lab, experimental lab for infectious diseases, etc.

My problem is not with the Panteon de Belen itself, but with the TOUR.

We got tickets for the 11:30PM tour... you've got to get there around 7PM to get the tickets. The government's website for the attraction says that adults pay $62.50 pesos. When we got there, we paid something like 77 pesos.

The place itself, is incredible, I really want to go back during the day; however, the tour was really boring and frustrating for me, as my Spanish is quite poor. Generally, if someone is speaking clearly, properly, and not too quickly, I can completely get the gist of what's being said. I would expect that kind of guide on a tour run by gov't. While I thought this tour guide was good, and everyone seemed to love her, she spoke in local slang (according to my family here) and very quickly, making 4 words sound like 1.

My biggest problem with the tour, actually, was the size of the group. There were about 50 of us. I don't know the exact max # of people allowed on a tour, but I think that 20 should be the max for an event like this. When I was able to get close enough to the guide to see her use of her hands to describe things, see her speak, I was better able to understand things. However, when I couldn't get physically close to her, it was pretty hopeless for me. There were about a half dozen stops around the Panteon, and on about half of them, we were told to leave our flashlights OFF. I couldn't really see anything interesting at that point, so I had to stand and wait, usually for about 20 minutes till we got moving to the next stop.

Some of the stuff the guide was saying (as translated by my wife) was pretty bogus, and mostly just spooky fun for young people... that a vampire died there, and they buried him under a pomegranate tree, and they say that it's his blood that taints the fruit of the tree... pretty dumb. Or they pointed out that you could see the image of a man among the efflorescence stains of the masonry wall, about 15 feet above ground. Just ridiculous stuff.

Other things sounded really cool, and I really regret that I didn't take a tour in English, even at a much higher expense. There are other stories that I could share here, like the one about the baby who's buried above ground, but I won't spoil it for you because hopefully you speak Spanish better than I do, or have the good sense to ask for a tour in your native language.

If you're in my boat, and you're more interested in the place itself, as opposed to a "spooky midnight tour of a cemetery," go and see it during the day. If, however, you insist on seeing it at night, BRING A FLASHLIGHT (the crappy ones that they sell there for 20 pesos are HORRIBLE, basically good for seeing things in your closet at home, not a cemetery at night), and note... at night you may NOT use any cameras, including your cell phone. During the day, you may take photos, but without a flash.

Full of history.
maj 2018 • Znajomi
This is a very old cemetery located in downtown Guadalajara full of really old gravestones. We did not take the tour, but read some of the information they had there and it's fascinating what this cemetery hides. This place is perfect to visit during the Dia de los Muertos celebration.

Beautiful place, full of history and interesting stories
sie 2018 • Pary
Our hotel had told us that there was a 1PM and a 2PM guided tour in English. We showed up for the 1PM, only to be told that it was in Spanish (as the 2PM would be, too). But the 1PM tour guide said that he could provide us with a tour ~2:15, if we came back. I did, and I'm glad, as it was a worthwhile visit. He spent around an hour telling me about the history of the cemetery (and also, therefore, a bit of Mexican and Guadalajaran history, too), as well as various stories/legends related to people who are buried there, or events which took place there. Overall, a nice way to spend an hour, away from some of the hustle and bustle of the city.

Are you not afraid to visit an old cemetery? Then this ride is for you.

A guided tour through one of the oldest cemeteries in the city, full of stories and legends from beyond the grave, including a vampire. Notorious characters lie in this cemetery, full of ancient and beautiful family pantheons.

Oldest Cemetary

The tours are only in Spanish. This is the oldest cemetery. Very fascinating. Worth going. It was only open for 50 years. They opened the cemetery behind the first hospital in Guadalajara. That hosp is still open today. Also if you wish, bring a small toy to leave for the baby or even a token for a prayer wish from the charity couple buried there.
