Originally the site of a 16th century Franciscan visita church, the present-day church was built in the 17th century.  Located in the northwest suburbs of Mérida, San Pedro Cholul is known for its beautiful polychrome colonial murals.  At the time that the photos on this website were taken, INAH (the National Institute of Anthropology and History) was completing a restoration of the murals under the direction of Fernando Garcés Fierros.
