Valladolid

Colonial town located 160 km east of Merida, on the way to Cancun

Founded on May 28, 1543 by Francisco de Montejo and called Valladolid as a tribute to the Spanish city of the same name.

It is a beautiful colonial city, strategically located between Merida and Cancun, just 40 km away from the majestic Chichén Itzá. Today it contains a harmonious set of civil and religious architecture types, including its fortified convent of San Bernardino of Siena, from sixteenth century, and San Gervasio Cathedral, a baroque ensemble from the early eighteenth century, and many other monuments, including the Municipal Palace, the Temple of San Juan de Dios, Santa Ana, San Roque, Santa Lucia, La Candelaria, El Telar, and The Central Park.
