I visited the town of Revilla in 1995 with compadre Oscar Vela and Oralia Perez Vela who’s uncle was born there and died and buried there .We found his grave and those of several Cuellar graves and tombs of lavish design dating to the 1700s.The town is abandoned and all that is left was crumbling buildings and a church town square.
