General view of the Palacio Canton, 1900s, Merida, Yucatan, Mexico, pictured on July 18, 2006, in the evening. The Palacio Canton was designed by Italian architect Enrico Deserti, directed by Manuel G. Canton Ramos, as the residence of General Francisco Canton, ex-governor of Yucatan. It was the first building in Merida to use elements such as ironwork and marble and is now a museum housing an important collection of Pre-Colombian Mayan objects. Merida is the state capital of Yucatan. Picture by Manuel Cohen.
