Paseo de Montejo
Located 100 meters from Hyatt Regency Merida, the most emblematic avenue of Mérida, named after Francisco de Montejo, the Spanish conquistador who founded the city in 1542, and is the location of some of the most iconic buildings and monuments of the city. Inspired by the French boulevard, the avenue is flanked by trees and has several roundabouts along its course. Many beautiful mansions were built along the avenue by wealthy Yucatecans of the 19th century. It extends north from the city center and connects into highway 231 just south of the Great Mayan Museum. Its length of over 6 km makes it one of the longest avenues of the city.
