The best time of year to visit the cemetery is October/ November when there are plenty of activities related to the Calaveras Festival.

La Salud Cemetery was founded in 1776 on the orders of the priest Vicente Flores Alatorre, after an outbreak of matlazahuatl took its toll on the local population.

The cemetery boasts a rotunda of distinguished figures whose remains rest here. Among the most prominent are Jesús Terán Peredo, Professor José T. Vela Salas, actor David Reynoso and historian Alejandro Topete del Valle.

During the Day of the Dead celebrations the cemetery is the scenario for acting out legends from the history of Aguascalientes.
