Convento San Antonio de Padua


City of Three Cultures

It contains important archeological remains which include five large Maya pyramids.

Located right in the middle of the peninsula, 72 km east of Merida. Izamal is called the City of Three Cultures because three historical periods merge together: the pyramids seen looking at the sky in backyard of local houses which testify to the greatness of the Maya; the convent, whose charm stems from the silence of the majestic walls that forever marked the footprint of the Spanish influence; the streets, buildings, squares, houses and churches, all in a harmonious visual rhythm of one color: yellow.
