The cathedral of Merida

The cathedral of Merida

This is a brief picture of the cathedral of Merida. It is the oldest church on this continent (built in 1598) and also the fastest built at its time. The cathedral itself is gigantic and hosts an array of vendors and crowds of people around its entrance. I have yet to go inside the building, but I have heard the interior is breathtaking! It was built from the stones of the main pyramid in the mayan city of T’ho on which the city of Merida was built. Just the possible age of the stonework is amazing.

Hi, I am just beginning a world adventure of my very own! My name is Tristan Davis Fralick and I am a nursing and social justice student from the central New York region. I really enjoy working with people and I have made it my goal to see as much of the world's cultures as possible to best understand and relate to the people that live all around us. In my free-time I enjoy hiking, biking, swimming, playing music, cooking, writing (obviously), and learning new things in any way that I can. This is a blog consisting of my travels past and present. I hope that you enjoy!
