Abandoned Casa

Merida in Mexico is a stunning city to visit, featuring beautiful colonial buildings, horses trotting on the calle (street), vibrant markets and street parties with friendly locals of all ages dancing and singing in the middle of the night, but still I was drawn to this forgotten casa (house)…

From what I understand, two women were murdered here in 1999 and the 4 killers that were seen on that night were never found.  It was suggested that the women were slaughtered over a debt that was not repaid.  There have been many reports of ghostly figures seen here in the years that followed, even police have seen the silhouettes running up and down the stairs in the abandoned house and have stopped to investigate, finding no one.

Usually houses have a street on just one side, or on two sides if the house is on a corner of two streets. This house is unusual in that it is surrounded by streets on 3 sides, it is almost the equivalent of living in the middle of a roundabout.  The lack of privacy combined with the haunting stories about this house has left it empty for years.   Just standing outside this place was super creepy and unwelcoming.  It stuck in my mind as one of the most intriguing places I saw in Merida.  Forgotten.co.nzForgotten.co.nz 1
