The clay stone hues of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception facade are also seen in the tombstones in the Barichara Cemetery. This site is noted for its carved stone tombs, many of them adorned with iron crosses. Here lie dozens of patiamarillos (“yellow feet”); that’s what the people of Barichara are called, because of the yellow color of the streets.
