DESCRIPTION – Yucatán: Mérida – Contemporary Architecture
To visit the city of Mérida is to get into a city full of history, dreams and hidden magic in every corner. Mérida is a mix between contemporary city and Mayan and colonial history. Architects like Augusto Quijano have placed Mérida in an important place in the country in terms of contemporary architecture and good taste, but we can also visit the old streets and buildings transferred to our time in a masterly manner. To travel through Mérida is to take a trip back in time.
On our guided tour by an architect we will visit the Olimpo Cultural Center and the San Benito Market, both by architect Augusto Quijano Axle.
