San Gervasio was once a Mayan ceremonial center for worshipping the fertility goddess, Ixchel. It was continually occupied from 300 CE until the 16th Century. Look for the "Temple of Hands," named for the small red handprints decorating its walls, and for the remains of an altar underneath a graceful Mayan arch where offerings to the "Rainbow Goddess" were placed. To get to the ruins, follow Avenida Benito Juarez east, seven kilometers out of town to the San Gervasio Access Road.
