The Cemetry

The cemetery is between the two villages,Balsa and Desejosa, where Balsa is under Desejosa´s durastiction, have their loved ones buried there.

 For some reason that is not 100% clarified, and has caused so much confusion among the villagers, the people decided to raise the remains of those who were there, and divided the cemetery in half and positioned the head of the tomb for the deceased's home village. So half the buried are facing one side, and the other half are facing the other side.

We do not know for sure how the funerals and burials were conducted and whether there was a procession, but the fact is that this tradition continues even today.
