Spooky Black Granite Mausoleum in Recoleta

Spooky Deserted Tomb with Spider Webs all over at the Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires, Argentina
No, this is not the haunted sanctuary of the heinous blood-sucking vampire; at least I couldn't find his initials. Plus, the commemorative plaque tells us otherwise. Neither is it a very realistic premature Halloween decoration. It is yet another deserted tomb at the Recoleta cemetery. It seems like there is no family member left or willing to tend the grave or the family lost all its money and importance. Anyway, I guess Count Dracula would love this creepy place. It is kind of spooky with all the spider webs on the entrance. Obviously this door has not been used for a very long time.

It looks to be a good place to be alone with your thoughts. Well, except for the ghosties flitting through the air.

Did you try the door?

Fascinating foto!

Love the spiderwebs which adds more effect to its being perfect for Halloween. Spooky-looking. :)

It looks like a set from a horror movie or a set for Halloween.

Actually, if one removed all the cobwebs, I think it's a beautiful mausoleum. So sad that Beatriz isn't being visited by family anymore.

If Stephen King ever comes to Buenos Aires, you'll know where to take him.

I took some photos very much like this when I visited there. I somehow found the ones with spider webs very interesting. I really enjoyed my visit there.
