Catedral de San Servasio, Valladolid
(3.9/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Head to Catedral de San Servasio and take in the grand 16th- and 18th-century architecture. The church was first built in 1545 and was partially demolished, before being restored during the early 1700s. It features two tall towers that loom large over the adjacent town square. In the middle of the facade, find a stone-carved shield with a white sparrow, and just above, you can see a 19th-century clock. Inside, tall arches support the domed interior. The building takes up a total surface area of 6,658 sq m (71,666 sq ft). Put Catedral de San Servasio at the forefront of your travel plans using our Valladolid tour planner.

  • We just had a short time (15 minutes or so) in this fine, old (300+ years) church but it was very pleasant. It is not open all day, so being able to visit the inside may depend on your luck and timing...  more »
  • This beautiful and impressive cathedral is located between the Park and the Plaza of Valladolid Calica. It was built in 1543 and was originally dedicated to the assumption of the Virgin Mary; then later was dedicated to San Gervasio (San Servasio). It is one of the oldest Christian churches in the new world. It is about 40 km from Chichen Itza and we visited during the stop of our tour.

  • Valladolid is a good stop during your trip to the west side of Yucatan. The city center is worth visiting.
  • The Cathedral of San Gervasio was completed in 1570 by the Franciscans, but desecrated due to the struggle between Mayans and Spanish destroyed, it was rebuilt in 1702. Very impressive church, especially when lighted at night.
  • We stopped for 20 minutes in Valladolid on our tour. Wish we would have had more time. Enjoyed our visit to the church and central square.
  • Very old church, I wish I could of seen more of it. We stopped by after our tour of Chichan Itza on the way back to Cancun. Great architecture.
  • Beautiful old church on the road between Cancun and Chichen Itza.
