Ex Convento de San Miguel Arcángel

Maní

Architectural heritage

The Magical Town of Maní stands out for its history and tradition, proof of this is the Ex Convent of San Miguel Arcángel, a place with years old.

This convent is one of the most important jewels in Yucatan, despite the years and the damage that the passing of time has caused. Built in 1559, it was the work of the architect Fray Juan Mérida.

In this religious construction you can see the wide façade, which housed the ‘’ open ’’ chapel and a crowned temple. At the main entrance you can see a stone statue of the Archangel San Miguel and at the bottom of the convent, small figures of various saints.

The beauty of its building makes it even more spectacular thanks to the silence that it houses between its corridors and the garden. There is an aromatic breeze of candles and incense that the locals leave on the makeshift altar at the foot of the statue of the Archangel Saint Michael.

This place undoubtedly invites you to explore it from all sides, thanks to its mysterious but attractive beauty, which will make you return to admire the niches painted and decorated by indigenous hands.

The schedule to visit the convent is from Monday to Sunday from 06:00 to 12:00 and from 17:00 to 19:00.
