We will walk through the town hall to appreciate the art in the colonial murals in the building, as well as the museum, then we will walk to the famous Church of San Servacio and its catacombs and then have a walk in the Calzada de los Frailes that adorns this community with its vivid colors and beauty in architecture.

In Valladolid there are many cenotes, unique in their own ways, cave-like cenotes with a mistery atmosphere and open cenotes with shallow waters and gorgeous green emerald colors. You can choose it!
