The Romance of the Yucatan Peninsula
Each building, structure, avenue in Mexico has a peculiar history that further enriches Mexican culture.
One of the most emblematic tourist places in Mérida Yucatán is the Casa de la Emperatriz Carlota, located in Sisal Yucatán. This hacienda received the wife of Maximiliano de
Habsburgo in 1865, and from the moment she took her first steps through this place, she fell in love with Yucatán.
Her words were: “Saying goodbye with a moved heart, that beautiful peninsula and so dear to me. All my sympathies have been and will remain forever in Yucatán. "
Today, this hacienda nostalgically keeps the memory of that visit, and transmits a magic to all who visit what once was, the home of Carlota the Empress.
You will find La Casa de la Emperatriz Carlota, south of the Sisal Lighthouse, another of the tourist attractions of Mérida Yucatán
