Santiago Neighborhood

Santiago Neighborhood

The Church of Santiago can be found in the first Maya town that the conquistadors found when they arrived to T'ho. They named the arch of the main entrance of the temple Santiago and it was completed in 1637. Santiago Park has had since its beginnings a lively and dynamic atmosphere, typical of a neighborhood full of memories. This corner of Merida has its own personality thanks to its surroundings: movie theaters and traditional businesses like the traditional Santos Degollado market. In the neighborhood you can also find the Centennial Park Zoo (built in 1910 on the occasion of the celebration of Independence), and the Museum of Natural History.
