Photographer's Note

The church is located to the west of the Historic Centre of Mérida at the junction of Calles 70 and 59. It was completed in 1637 CE on the site of a Maya village with the intent it would service the community. The nave was constructed of rubble, and is supported by 14 columns, similar to the cathedral, made of masonry with Doric bases and capitals. The bell tower is a resplendent design with six openings accompanied by large trefoil crosses. The atrium appears to be devoted to parking spaces, and the church was closed at the time of my visit. There is a park in front offering up pleasant shade.
