Rectoría de la Ermita de Santa Isabel

Iglesia Ermita de Santa Isabel (Saint Isabel Church) is a nice small church in the San Sebastián neighborhood. The church was built in 1748. If you're in the neighbourhood, it's worth taking a look.

Right next to the church on the left side is the small Parque Ermita de Santa Isabel and on the right side is a botanical garden.

The botanical garden is closed during the week, but is sometimes open during the weekends, for Sunday's biciruta - but often there is someone there who will let you in if you ask. Two blocks from the Ermita church you will find the San Sebastian Park.

The church was named Santa Isabel, in honor of the mother of San Juan Bautista. This site also came to be known as "Nuestra Señora del Buen Viaje" (Our Lady of the Good Journey) due to its location on the side of the royal road that led to Campeche and other communities.

Iglesia Ermita de Santa Isabel church was built by Gaspar González de Ledezma. The exact date of its foundation is not known, but an inscription over the main door marks 1748.
