More about Valladolid…

Valladolid was built by the Spanish in 1545 on the ruins of the old Maya city of Zací, the capital of the Maya Cupules. One year after its founding at Zací, Valladolid was the site of the first Mayan uprising against the Spanish in 1546, with reprises of anti-Spanish sentiment in 1838 and 1847. In 1910, 1500 Maya descendants took over Valladolid, in “the first spark of the Mexican Revolution.”
