We took a walking tour of Merida that brought us to the Palace of Government.

What a beautiful museum that tells the history of the Yucatan in general, and Merida in particular.

Often brutal, the conquistadors never fully conquered the Maya, and you can see the Maya’s defiance in art both provocative and subtle.

This museum is a must-see for first time visitors to Merida: getting a guide who speaks English is worth the effort for the amazing stories!
