Trip Planner: Mexico / Yucatan Peninsula / Yucatan / Valladolid / Convent of San Bernardino of Siena
Convent of San Bernardino of Siena stands as Xochimilco's cultural and historic center. An old parish church built in the 16th century over a pre-Hispanic temple, the convent features a simple beige stone wall façade, long corridors of thick arches, and a grass courtyard. Inside stands a towering altar lavished in gold decoration and religious icons. Observe numerous old paintings and frescos hanging throughout. Head up to the organ loft or bell tower for encompassing views of the plaza. A nighttime light show tells town's history accompanied by a light projection on the church's façade.

If you are lucky you will see kids running around barefoot, some locals going to the mess, or Maya locals selling exotic delicious fruits
