Photographer's Note

This is the entry to the nave from the south and the Park of Santa Ana. The transept is out of the frame and to the right. I did enter the church and found it quite dark so that viewing any of the decoration (and paintings) was difficult.

In the park, there is an unattractive monument to Don Andrés Quintana Roo. For some reason in Mérida, monuments with fountains do not work. Either there is a water shortage or the plumbing is defective, or both. Andrés Quintana Roo was a member of the famous Congress of Chilpancingo (Guerrero State) in 1813 CE that resulted, eventually, in the Independence of Mexico from Spain. And yes, the state in eastern Yucatan was named after him, in recognition of his contribution. I also read that he was a one-time governor of Yucatan (State).
