Pasaje de la Revolución

Pasaje de la Revolución is located at Plaza Grande between the Catedral de Mérida and the MACAY (Museo de Arte Contempoáneo Ateneo de Yucatán) and shows changing sculpture exhibitions.

The present MACAY was originally an archiepiscopal palace attached to the Catedral de Mérida. In 1902, the approximately 100m long and 1m wide passage was built that separates the museum from the cathedral. The Pasaje de la Revolución was born.

The passage was built in the French style, with one large arch at the beginning, one at the end of the passage, and an iron and glass canopy between them. However, the structure was demolished in the 1940s due to stability problems.

It wasn't until 2001 that the city of Mérida decided to breathe new life into the passage and it was rebuilt to reflect the original architecture and style. In 2011, the roof was also reconstructed in its original form.

After the remodeling in 2001, the place was given to the Fundación Cultural Macay A.C. to use it for art and culture. Since then, changing sculpture exhibitions by Mexican and international artists have been shown in the passage.

Pasaje de la Revolución is freely accessible from two sides and is passed by more than 6,000 people every day. Of course, it is also possible that there are no or fewer exhibits to see when you are there.
