about Merida Cathedral
Merida Cathedral, known locally as Catedral de San Ildefonso, in Mexico is a sixteenth century cathedral built by Spanish colonialists.
In fact, constructed from 1556 to 1598, Merida Cathedral was the first such cathedral to be built in the inland Americas.
Not only was Merida Cathedral built on the site of the former Maya city of Tiho, it was also constructed from the stones of Maya pyramids.
