The Beautiful Yellow City of Izamal

About an hour’s drive from Merida is the lovely town of Izamal. It’s a great place to go for a day trip. There’s some great colonial architecture, a Mayan pyramid and a really good restaurant. The really cool thing about Izamal is that all of the buildings are painted a sunny golden yellow. I’m told that the buildings were painted in honor of Pope John Paul II’s visit in 1993. I hope you enjoy these pictures of my visit there.
