Mitla in Nahuatl means "Place of the Dead", however, its Zapotec name is Lyobaa which means 'tomb' or 'place of rest'. Mitla has been known for centuries as the place of rest, it is strongly believed that people who have passed away (Tohgol in Zapotec) return once more to be with their loved ones, the spirit of babies and children return on October 31 (Día de los angelitos/Day of the Angels) at noon and proceed to leave at noon of the following day. However, the spirits of adults return on November 1 at noon and leave on November 2 at noon, this celebration is known as The Day of the Dead. Everyone in Mitla prepares months in advance for this longed festivity as it is an opportunity to join their loved ones once more. My aunts and cousins celebrate this annual ritual by preparing an altar with favorite food, drinks, fruits to my grandparents and uncle who have passed away. Secondly important, the annual village celebration takes place the third week of January till the first week of February, lots of music, drinks and colorful textiles. Mitla is truly a magical place, every where you go and anything you will see has a history, you will be intrigued by the sound of the telares weaving curtains, comforters, rebozos and ropa típica, you will hear mystical stories about hidden treasures and artifacts found many years ago.
