Visit Sites of Interest

Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the Main Plaza

The Plaza Francisco Cartón Rosado comprises the heart of the Pueblo Mágico. Almost everything there is to see in Valladolid is just a few steps away.

In addition to enjoying its lively atmosphere sitting on one of the characteristic double white benches (super lively especially at night, with dances, marquesitas stalls, etc.), it is worth stopping to observe its particular fountain, known as La Mestiza.

See Swing the Garlands of the Punished Church

We are talking about the Church of San Servacio, the most important thing to see in Valladolid. It presides over the central square and is always decorated with colorful garlands that come from its two towers.

That of San Servacio dates from the moment of the arrival of the Spanish. They dismantled a Mayan pyramid that was there and built a church with its stone that, like all the others, was oriented towards Rome (Franciscan norm).

Years later, an event for Valladolid known as "The crime of the mayors" took place in it, where the mayor (and another man) was murdered in this church by another who had deposed him from office, despite having accepted sacred; The latter was later sentenced to death. This shameful milestone led to the temple being destroyed and erected again, this time with the wrong orientation, towards the north, because it did not deserve to face the East. Since then it has had the nickname of the Punished Church.

Walk the Pastel Colored Streets – Calzada de los Frailes

The most striking thing for anyone who walks through the streets of Valladolid are its beautiful colonial-style houses painted in the most varied pastel tones: yellow, pink, light blue; an unforgettable experience.

Learn about History in one of the Museums

The San Roque Museum (free) has been converted from a chapel to a hospital since the 16th century, and currently houses some interesting exhibitions on the history of Valladolid, the Mayan world, etc. The mayors of crime were buried in its patio. It has important archaeological pieces such as a snake head found in the ruins of Ek Balam.

Very curious is the House of the Deer, a private collection of crafts from the region that has been compiled by a family dedicated to Yucatecan and Mayan themes. The tour takes place inside the house itself and at the end a donation is paid that goes to charitable associations.
