San Bernardino de Sienta Former Convent

Valladolid

From Wednesday to Sunday, the San Bernardino de Siena Former Convent is modernized in its outside for the sound and light show: “Nights from the Heroic Valladolid”. Here you will learn in an amusing way about the history of the city and its importance for the peninsula of Yucatán. This is a free show so the only thing you have to do is sit in one of the seats spread across the atrium and garden of the temple.

You will see the arrival of the Spanish Conquistadores, the construction of the former convent and the splendor of Valladolid to this day. You will also watch scenes from typical dances like jarana, the beauty and complexity of its handmade typical clothes and of its antique barrios. All this is just a tiny part of the heritage of the Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town) of Valladolid.

In addition, if you want to get to know about the history of San Bernardino de Siena, you can take a guided tour. It is one of the oldest temples in the peninsula and the biggest after the Former Convent of San Antonio de Padua in Izamal. Its notary 's office is built on top of the cenote (a natural water pool), Sis Há, an important place as it helped in the evangelization of the Mayan population
