Lost Places

There are Lost Places in every country: Abandoned houses, hotels, train stations, airports or factories. In some countries there are entire villages and towns where nobody lives anymore. Nature spreads unhindered and the sleeping beauties slowly crumble into ruins.

Old colonial buildings in Mérida are often left empty due to unresolved legal issues or simply because the owner does not have the money to maintain the building.

The abandoned buildings can usually only be viewed from the outside because they are almost always well protected against "invaders". And because the typical Mexican likes high walls and likes to turn his belongings into a small fortress.

Sometimes, however, the character of a lost place is deliberately retained. Some of the old haciendas, for example, which now function as hotels, restaurants or spas, have buildings that have deliberately not been restored in order to preserve the charm of the old days. This doesn't really count as a lost place, but it looks very authentic in the holidaymaker's photo.
