Valladolid - Places (Part Two of Two), Yucatan, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico


This is part two of a two-part blog post. The town of Valladolid is inland in Yucatan State in the northern portion of the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.  Yesterday's blog post was about some of the people of this town.  Today's is a snapshot of some of the memorable sights/places. The photo above is part of Iglesia de la Candelaria which is located a few short blocks away from the central downtown plaza area.

A dark lizard scales the outside of an  inn near the Iglesia de la Candelaria.

An idle wheelbarrow beside an old church.

Park benches in the main downtown plaza. Few folks sits out in the sun at midday.  Even this time of year it was close to 90 degrees F.


A downtown hotel we scoped out while looking for a place to have lunch. This wasn't it but I liked the stairway.


A parishioner's bicycle awaits at the side door to the Cathedral de San Gervasio.


A subtle curbside advertisement outside a cobbler's shop.

An abandoned inner courtyard, the paint fading with the passage of time. A catchment barrel for roof rainwater runoff sits in the corner. This is one of my favorite images of the entire trip - go figure.


An hotel room balcony.


An inner hallway at a hotel.

The inner courtyard at El Mesón del Marqués where we splurged and had a delightful lunch including  (what else but) guacamole prepared tableside.
