San Sebastian Neighborhood

San Sebastian Neighborhood

The San Sebastian neighborhood is one of the oldest and most traditional in Merida. Since ancient times a small Maya village was settled southwest of Merida, which at the time of settlement was named San Sebastián. Some believe that it happened when Montejo’s troops reached T'ho. In this traditional neighborhood one can find the Shrine of Santa Isabel dating from the seventeenth century and was formerly called the shrine of our lady of good voyage, probably for the position by the royal highway of Campeche.
