Funeral Museum invites tours of Durango’s ‘haunted places’


A series of night tram tours to “haunted places” in Durango will start this weekend as part of the activities of the “Benigno Montoya” Museum of Funeral Art.

Led by the Durango historian Carlos Enrique Reyes, the tour to these mysterious places will be completely free and open to the public.

The tour lasts approximately one hour and a half, which will cover three places in the urban sprawl.

The first of them in La Quinta, now known as Plaza Hito, where until a few years ago it was what is known as El Mercadito.

Just a few meters away is the second point of the tour, the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Guadalupe, where according to the Legends of Durango, in the mid-fifties, a parish priest from that time was besieged by several souls in pain, who they lamented but in turn intimidated him.

The third place on the tram tour will be the Old Railway Station. In addition to the visits to these spaces, some legends such as “La Quinta”, “The horror of the Sanctuary” and “The ghost train of La Breña” will be told.

The tours will be this Saturday and Sunday, starting at the Plaza de Armas, at 8:00 p.m.

Those interested in attending these tours should call 6181378755 or reserve their place by going directly to the offices of the Museum of Funeral Art, located in the Panteón de Oriente, starting today from 08:00 to 21 :00 hours.
