There are quite a few churches around Merida, with the town jewel on the east side of the main plaza: Catedral de San Ildefonso. This church is among the oldest in Mexico, from the late 1500s and built on top of a former Mayan temple site.

There other, smaller churches that also are pretty impressive around town.

Directions: Facing the central plaza.
