The Carmelite Monastery of San Ángel

Mexico City, Mexico

I’m currently working on a full piece for Atlas Obscura on theses guys but I couldn’t wait to share the photos. These are naturally occurring mummies on display in the crypt beneath the monastery in San Ángel. The corpses are former parishioners of the neighboring church buried between 1600 and 1800. They were found by accident when troops ransacked the monastery during the Mexican Revolution in 1917.

More to come soon…

All photos by me.
