Practical Information

Built in 1575 by a local grocer, the Santa Lucia Church is now a prominent landmark that not only gave its name to the surrounding neighborhood, but is also a good example of the typical Yucatan architecture that was in vogue at that time. Initially constructed for African slaves that lived in Merida in the late 16th Century, the salmon-colored church is now an active church important to the people of the Santa Lucia neighborhood. If you are in the mood to catch a glimpse of a slice of local history, then heading to the Santa Lucia Church can be a great idea.
