Valladolid: Entering the Cathedral of San Gervasio
We become so small when entering a place of worship, this local woman especially as she made her way to the entrance of the Cathedral of San Gervasio in Valladolid. It wasn't Sunday. I'm sure of it because Sundays in Mexican city centers are usually much busier with families wandering around the city and going to mass. On this particular day there were just a few folks going about their usual routine.
If you’re spending most of your time beachside in Tulum, Valladolid is worth the hour or so drive for a change of scenery and to check out the colonial architecture and history of this pretty town. The Cathedral of San Servacio o Gervasio is a must-see, as is the town center park, Francisco Canton Rosado. Stop by Taberna de los Frailes to sample a blend of Mayan and colonial style cooking. The Costilla 'Kéek'em, pork ribs in Mayan red sauce, was delicious.
