We need to see through time in order to discover
the legacy of the Mayan people and the forgers of the colony left
, inheritance of incalculable value that
is evident on its architectural works, which configure the urban
and rural landscape of the capital of the State of Yucatan.
We walk across downtown, stroll at Montejo Drive and its surroundings, watching the beautiful palaces built during the bonanza of the henequen (a vegetal fibre used to manufacture cords and ropes); or stop in awe before the colonial constructions, built with stones extracted from the Mayan temples and palaces.
Change of scenario, the city is left behind; there are beautiful and welcoming haciendas full of distinction on the outskirts, of colonial origins or born out of the henequen fever. But this is not all, there is something missing: the archaeological compounds of Mayan origins, Uxmal and Chichén Itzá, Patrimonies of Humanity and jewels of stone that project to eternity.
There is much more to see: natural sanctuaries, ports and beaches
that make us think of paradise. Do you need any further reasons
to visit Mérida
