Features Gallery – Directory
In the first of their series on Mexican architecture, Churches of the Mayas/Iglesias de los Mayas, Carmen Cusi de Garcia-Pimentel and J.B. Johnson present a magnificent selection of viceregal architecture of the Yucatan Peninsula, from the sixteenth century forward. With over 350 full-color photographs and 9-page gazetteer, they bring to life the lesser-known churches that abound, many hidden within the interior of the Yucatan, Campeche, and Quintana Roo.
