The City of Merida is wonderful and a must see when you go to the Yucatan. It's the Capital City and has SO much to offer. This cathedral is the oldest in North America.

30 mins from the house.

The biggest Cathedral in all Latin America, a enormous colonial style construction surrounded by also colonial buildings, downtown Merida its a great place to walk around and enjoy food, night shows, theater, outdoor shows and a bunch of things to do there. for sure I suggest more than one night around to spend here that you will love.

Great history and architecture built from Mayan pyramids. Located in the Central Plaza. A terrific spot to hang out anytime and best on the weekends when streets are closed to traffic for pedestrians.

Visit the beautiful city of Mérida starting with its Cathedral. It has a very interesting architectural style and I recommend that you also visit it inside because it has several artistic works. At night there are shows in which they illuminate it all, so it becomes a very beautiful spectacle to observe.

Uno de los edificios más emblemáticos de Mérida es su catedral, dedicada a San Idelfonso, que alberga en su altar mayor la representación de Cristo bajo techo más grande del mundo. Además de visitar su sencillo y austero interior, les recomiendo que se detengan a contemplar la fachada, ¡que es preciosa!

Una de las visitas imprescindibles, me animo a decir, de toda la península de Yucatán, ya que es de las cosas más bonitas para ver. La Catedral fue construida a fines del siglo XVI y es imponente por donde se la mire, con unas dimensiones gigantescas. Para mí gusto es más linda de afuera que de adentro, aunque vale la pena la recorrida interior para observar los detalles del altar y las pequeñas capillas.

También conocida como la Catedral de Yucatán o la Catedral de San Ildefonso de Yucatán, es la catedral más antigua de toda América continental. De noche se ilumina con un juego de luces que es una belleza. Fue construida entre 1562 y 1599 con estilo renacentista. Es realmente grande. Tiene 5 capillas y 3 naves. En su altar mayor hay una imágen de Jesucristo, que se considera la imagen de Jesucristo de madera más grande bajo techo que existe. Se encuentra a un costado del Zócalo, por lo que es muy fácil llegar a ella.
