Ermita de Santa Isabel

Ermita de Santa Isabel Review

At the southern end of the city stands the restored and beautiful Hermitage of St. Isabel. Built circa 1748 as part of a Jesuit monastery, also known as the Hermitage of the Good Trip, it served as a resting place for colonial-era travelers heading to Campeche. It's one of the most peaceful places in the city, with an interesting, inlaid-stone facade (although the church itself is almost always closed), and is a good destination for a ride in a horse carriage. Behind the hermitage are its huge and lush tropical gardens, with a waterfall and footpaths, which are usually unlocked during daylight hours.
