Merida: Spanish colonial city with Monteio house

Excellent

Like the majority of Spanish colonial cities, Merida is constructed in a checkerboard fashion, with the Plaza of Independence in the middle. Just around the corner one can find a house named Montejo, which was constructed in the year 1543 and served as the 1st governor palace and today is a bank, still keeping the coat of arms of Montejo and statues of the conquistadors,victoriious over the heads of the Maya. Opposite the town hall is the cathedral, the oldest in America, with a dome that houses the Christ of Unity, America's biggest wood carving with the Christ of the Blisters, who survived a fire and instead of burning it blistered like human skin.
