Fodor's Expert Review Iglesia de San Antonio de Padua

Ticul Religious Building/Site/Shrine

This evocatively faded red church is typical of the Yucatán's colonial sanctuaries. It has been ransacked on more than one occasion, but the Black Christ altarpiece is original. The best view might be from the outside, where you can take in the facade and savor the slow pace of the town as families ride by in carts attached to bicycles and locals mill around in traditional Mayan dress.
