A highlight of Day of the Dead in Oaxaca is a visit to the cemeteries. One of the main cemeteries to visit is the Panteon General
(the Oaxaca General Cemetery), also known as the Panteon San Miguel
. Here you will find candles lighting up the niches, and some Day of the Dead altars. There are stands selling treats and carnival rides set up outside the cemetery.
