Izamal is known as “The Yellow City” and also as “The City of Hills”. The most of the “hills” are probably the remains of ancient temple pyramids.

Izamal has leftovers of five pyramids. It is considered a colonial jewel because all the buildings are painted yellow. The main attraction is the convent of Izamal build using the stones of the Mayan pyramids. Its founder is Fray Diego de Landa, who is famous for burning the indigenous writings.
