Built on top of a Mayan temple this monastery is a magnificent construction. Izamal received the visit of Pope John Paul II and was a very important ceremonial center for the Mayas.
This very spot is steeped in the most incredible amount of history, one could ever imagine. Visited by Pope JohnPaul II. He also learned the Mayan language speaking to the people living in the NOW world there. Built atop a pyramid in the city of Izamal a sight to behold. A very spiritual journey.

Stopped here for the convent and the markets. Unfortunately the local bishop was visiting and we couldn't enter the convent but the local markets were great. The whole town is yellow and very cute

A beautiful visit to this historical convent,charming and educational.The convent is kept in excellent condition and is truly a unique experience in the beautiful `Yellow City' of Izamal.The city itself is kept very clean and yes...all the buildings are painted yellow,it looks beautiful.
Looks alot more interesting from the outside. Inside has a bunch of old faded pictures, very very bad statues that look like they were bought from one of the vendors out front. If this had cost money it would have received 1 star
