Santa Cecilia is the main setting in the upcoming film Coco. It is a small and lively Mexican village that cherishes music, and is located parallel to the fabled Land of the Dead.

Notable Locations

  • Santa Cecilia Plaza - The park center of the town. In the middle is a commemorative statue of Ernesto de la Cruz.
  • Pantéon Santa Cecilia - The local cemetery.

Trivia

  • The town shares its name with the Santa Cecilia church located in Italy. The town's music-loving nature seems to tie in with the church's namesake Saint Cecilia, a patroness of musicians.
  • Santa Cecilia was referenced in Cars 3 when one of the rookie racers on the trademill was homesick.
