Plaza Grande, Merida

(950+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
Plaza Grande represents a main gathering point in the heart of the city. The former Spanish "Plaza de Armas," it was built on the site of the ancient Mayan city of T'ho and named after the eponymous town in Spain. Rest in the shade of tall laurel trees that line the verdant square, or admire the historic buildings that surround it, with stuccoed pastel-colored facades. View the antique cathedral, one of the oldest in North America, people-watch, or take in the square's busy atmosphere. Add Plaza Grande to your Merida travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Merida tourist route planner.
