Izamal, Magic Town

Also known as the city of the 3 cultures

Izamal Magic Town

The state of Yucatan is recognized for the infinity of natural and historical attractions that it has, but also for its beautiful cities, one of them is the Magic Town of Izamal.

Known as the city of the three cultures because it combines the pre-Hispanic and colonial history of the state at the same time that contemporary life is reflected.

When walking through its streets you will notice a very curious detail, since all the houses are painted yellow with white, this is because in 1993, Pope John Paul II visited the city of Izamal, so the decision was made to paint it with the vatican colors
