This church is on the Plaza Grande in Merida Centro. Saturdays and Sundays here are special. They close the roads around the Plaza and have many cultural events. Music, dancing and entertainment. If you go there to shop, avoid the vendors in the Plaza. Although...More

One of the most beautiful cathedrals in México. Try to visit early in the morning due to crowds at evenings.

This nicely maintained cathedral is open to all with free admission. It has a large carved wooden cross with Jesus impaled. Apparently the largest in south America.

The Cathedral is huge of course, it is also simple so you are not distracted by gold but see the huge Christ. It closes for the early afternoon. I was lucky enough to be there for a 6pm wedding - the accoustics were wonderful! Then...More

Merida is a lovely and safe place in Mexico to be at. And the Cathedral (being apparently the oldest in Latin America) is a real treat for anyone visiting this beautiful city of Yucatan.

As I've commented on other cathedrals it's a nice cathedral but every Mexican town has one or more and while this one is nice it's not special. Being on the city square you'll see it anyway moving through the town centre. It's only a minute...More

It’s a 16th century cathedral built inside with large quary stones like the European ones. Many are buried inside dating 1820 and so.

usually open in the later afternoon, so if you want to go in, head there around 5 or so. It's worth going in.
