“La Ermita de San Isabel is, without a doubt, a charming corner of Mérida. In the Barrio (neighborhood) of San Sebastián in the Centro Histórico, near the old city gate marking the Camino Real to Campeche, with its striking arch at the corner of 64 and 69, is Ermita de Santa Isabel, located at the corner of 66 and 79, named for the mother of San Juan Bautista. In the center of the park is the plaza with a kiosk beside the church, surrounded by a lovely garden with seating and play areas, watched over by beautiful Colonial-style homes which will surely help you to visualize what this beautiful area looked like in days gone by.”
