  • The building of the Autonoma University of Yucatan dates from the seventeenth century is very well preserved, its central courtyard has a sober touch, without a doubt the most beautiful is that it is in use for the population...

  • Although you can't access many parts of the building as they are offices, the center has a very nice well.
