  • This Palacio is on the Plaza Grande. It is a lovely building with HUGE murals from a famous Merida artist. Worth a visit!! 
  • Stands proudly on the main square of Merida. A glimpse of life at Golden time in the region. Interesting architecture and quiet inside, despite the location

  • Green Wall is a striking Yucatan State Government. The thought a moment not have guards at the entrance. Without question put. The art gallery is on the second floor.
