San Juan Neighborhood

San Juan Neighborhood

The church of St. John (San Juan) was built on a XVII century chapel, right between 1769 and 1770. The corridor, with a Mudejar influence, stands within the set that was part of a public inn for travelers that was behind the temple. It precedes the vestry and is perhaps the last evidence of the original chapel. The Arch of San Juan was built around 1690 to delineate the limits of Merida as part of a possible project for fortification, which never took place. This arch is larger one and is found in the old exit to Royal Highway (Camino Real) to Campeche.
