Izamal Light and Sound: Izamal, located 72km of the city of Merida, it is called the “City of the Three Cultures” because it has three main periods: pre Hispanic (pyramids), colonial (the convent which is an indelible mark of Spanish influence), and modern period with its friendly and gentle people proud of their culture.
The Pope John Paul II visited Izamal in 1993 there was a memorable mass in the large atrium that precedes the Temple dedicated to the Immaculate Conception virgin. Three large ramps facing north, South and West, provide access to this monumental Atrium, considered the largest in Latin America (8,000 square meters surface).
Walking quietly along the beautiful and picturesque streets, enjoying its gastronomy, handicras and its people, will be an unique experiences that will help you to understand the past and present of this Mayan village. In the night you can enjoy the sound and light show.
