What charmed me the most was the drawings and every painting that composes all the architecture of the place. It is well worth knowing and enjoying this wonderful and beautiful church.

We decided to make a detour on our journey into Valladolid and called into Uayma to see the church. Spectacular painted walls, lovely to walk round and have no other tourists around. Real rural Mexico.

Built in 1646 this church was destroyed during the Caste Wars. Restoration was early 2000s and it opened in 2004. It is unlike anything I have seen. Located in the quiet village of Uayman' a short drive from Valladolid.

Unique and charming, a short drive from Valladolid. This Iglesia is not like any you will see in the region.

If you have an interest in historic Mexican churches, do not miss this one. We've seen dozens of churches across the country, but none like this. Built around 1542, it is exquisitely unique.
